This question already has an answer here:
The wikipeda-page for AIC states: "it (AIC) deals with the trade-off between the goodness of fit of the model and the complexity of the model". If I understand this correctly, this means that AIC is not a measure of goodness of fit, but merely includes a term (the maximum likelihood) which evaluates goodness of fit.
The wikipedia-page for goodness-of-fit, however, lists AIC as a measure for "assessing whether a given distribution is suited to a data-set". I interpret this that AIC is considered a measure of goodness of fit.
So, is AIC a measure of goodness of fit or not?
This question is not about how AIC is defined or what it is, but if it fits into the definition "a measure of goodness of fit". Therefore, it is not a duplicate question.
