Suppose I have a random variable $X$ that follows a distribution identically (but not independently), $X \overset{id}{\sim} F$. This is usually meant to say that $X$ has a non-parametric specification. I am wondering why $X$ is non-parametrically specified in this case. Could anyone give some pointers?
