MAY I reply briefly to some of Prof. R. A. Fisher's remarks1 on my suggested test2? 

More Powerful Tests from Confidence Interval p Values

Abstract In this article the problem of comparing two independent binomial populations is considered. It is shown that the test based on the confidence interval p value of Berger and Boos often is

The criticism of conservativeness of Fisher ’ s exact test reached a climax

An information theoretic approach to the evaluation of 2 2 × contingency tables is proposed. By investigating the relationship between the Kullback-Leibler divergence and the maximum likelihood

Tests of Independence for a 2 × 2 Contingency Table with Random Margins

Fisher’s exact test is commonly used for testing the hypothesis of independence between the row and column variables in a r × c contingency table. It is a “small-sample” test since it is used when

The analysis of 2 × 1 and 2 × 2 contingency tables: an historical review

The historical development of analytic techniques for frequency data presented as 2 x 1 or 2 x 2 contingency tables is described and a single statistic approximating the chi-square distribution is used to test the hypothesis of an association between the two relevant variables.

- 0501 Tests of Independence in a Single 2 x 2 Contingency Table with Random Margins

In analysis of the contingency tables, the Fisher’s exact test is a very important statistical significant test that is commonly used to test independence between the two variables. However, the

Practical valid inferences for the two-sample binomial problem

It is shown that no one method can meet all the desirable properties and give recommendations based on which properties are given more importance from applied frequentist inference: validity, accuracy, good power, equivariance, compatibility, coherence, and parameterization and direction of effect.

What ’ s the Difference Between the Two Methods ?

There are two fundamentally different exact tests for comparing the equality of two binomial probabilities – Fisher’s exact test (Fisher, 1925), and Barnard’s exact test (Barnard, 1945). Fisher’s
