Abstract : In a previous paper (1965), the author has treated the problem of estimating the jumps of the probability distribution function. In this paper, the author proposes the sum of the squares of the jumps as a criterion of departure from absolute continuity of the distribution function and then solves the problem of estimation based on a random sample.
