Both functions serve related purposes, but provide different approaches. The obvious difference is that hist yields an immediate graphical output while density requires an explicit plot request. More subtle differences appear when you try to generate a reproducible analysis. hist gives you the details of the histogram used, but does not provide any information on the rules upon which this is based. You have to resort to the history of your commands, and the help information on hist (or better yet, the source code of © 2009 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC CASE STUDY: DISTRIBUTION DIAGNOSTICS 21 hist to be on the safe side) to retrieve this information.

3 Statistics of Distribution Functions; Kolmogorov-Smirnov Tests We now move from a naive approach to a statistical point of view. For independent identically distributed variables (X1 , . . , Xn ) with distribution function F , in a naive approach we have assumed that i/n = Fn (X(i) ) ≈ F (X(i) ). We wanted to use this relation to test our distribution assumption. In particular, for a uniform distribution on (0, 1) this relation reads i/n ≈ X(i) = F (X(i) ). From a statistical point of view, each X(i) is a random variable.

Repeat the estimation for 1000 samples. Analyse the distribution of estimated mean, variance and standard deviation for repeated samples. Moments can be calculated using simple arithmetic operations. Their combination (exact or approximate) follows simple laws; however, they are quite sensitive. Even shifting minimal probability mass can lead to a breakdown. For the empirical distribution this means if a proportion of 1 − ε of the observed data follows a model distribution and a proportion of ε comes from some different distribution, the moments can take any value, even for arbitrarily small values of ε.
