Subject: Kolmogorov-Smirnov Goodness-of-Fit Test
Message:
In all the books and publications that I have seen, Kolmogorov-Smirnov (K-S) Goodness-of-Fit Test Critical Values are given in the Significance Levels of 20%, 15%, 10%, 5%, 1%. Are there any publications that give K-S Critical Values at Significance Levels greater than 20% Please reply through my E-Mail as well Ananda Fax: 905-608-6178

Though it's possible, I doubt that you'll find tables greater than 20% risk, because few people would want to use them. At 20%, the chance of error is one in five. Higher values increse the probability of error. When the risk gets too high, it doesn't make sense to run the test.
