Re: st: Fischer Exact Test again
For purposes of calculating Fisher's exact test, that is a huge sample,
because of all the factorials that need to be computed. With moderately
sized samples in each cell, the chi-square test approaches so closely to
the exact test that there is little reason to do the exact test. David
