Title: On testing independence of count data Authors:  Bojana Milosevic - University of Belgrade (Serbia) [presenting]

Abstract: A novel class of independence tests specially designed for count data is presented. In particular, the class of test statistics is based on the difference between joint and marginal probability generating functions and can be applied to count data of any arbitrary fixed dimension. The limiting properties of test statistics are explored. In order to compare tests with just a few competitors known so far in terms of powers, several resampling procedures have been utilized to approximate null distribution. Their usage is theoretically justified.
