What do I check if some one-variable data fits a distribution? In this case, I plotted my data in excel and it looks like a gamma distribution. How do I check "goodness of fit" like you can with the linear/polynomial/power/exponential regressions that excel has? I also have mathematica at my disposal.

I want to determine the difference between distributions. When would I use kl-divergence and when would I use rmse? It seems like both equations reduce deviation to a single number, but couldn't find a comparison between them.
