For testing stationary state distribution of positive recurrent Markov dependent Bernoulli trials, Tavare & Altham (1983) proposed a scale-corrected statistic, X2 TA, which has a χ2 limiting distribution. In this paper, we establish the asymptotic optimality of X2 TA by showing that it is asymptotically equivalent to the optimal test X2 B obtained under the modified likelihood approach of Billingsley (1961). Some simulation results are also given to examine finite sample performance of X2 TA and X2 B.
