I've use KS to test for likely deviation of a distribution from normality, I've never heard of the G test until now.


Two sample KS can check if two distributions differ from one another

The correct test is the G-test for independence, not the KS.
But you have to know about statistics to know that.


Just about every reference I've seen for a G test explicitly warns NOT TO USE THIS FOR SMALL DATA SETS

I don't know what the ***** your problem is, but over the course of the last month or so you've gone out of your way to pick fights with half a dozen people on the forums.

In all seriousness, go get some help, because this is just sad.

Acting out on internet forums isn't going to get you what you actually need.

You are misunderstanding the difference between sets of continuous (KS) and discontinuous (G-test) groups.
The G-test has been around for more than 40 years.
It replaces Chi-square for larger groups.
