Abstract : A central limit theorem is proved for certain statistics of a multinomial random variable. These statistics include Pearson's chi-square test statistic and the likelihood ratio test statistic for simple hypotheses. The feature that distinguishes the results of this work from others is that the limit is taken as the number of multinomial cells become large. (Author)
