Many common statistical problems defy conventional parametric analysis simply because of the distributions of the resultant test statistics are not well-tabulated. Or, worse, we settle for a less-than-optimal statistic simply because a table for the less-than-optimal statistic is readily available—the chi-square statistic (Section 6.3.1) and its misapplication to sparse contingency tables is one obvious example.
