# Fisher's Exact with mid-P method 1.0

Date Added: May 06, 2013  |  Visits: 207

It is a non-parametric statistical test for discrete data used todetermine if there are nonrandom associations between the two variables.Mid-P values are a reasonable compromise between the conservativeness ofthe ordinary exact test and the uncertain adequacy of large-sample methods.Mid-P values usually performs well, typically being a bit conservative,and is currently recommended by many leading statisticians.Ref.: DeltaProt toolbox at http://services.cbu.uib.no/software/deltaprot/Input:X: data matrix (2x2-table) of observed countstail: The alternative hypothesis against which to compute p-values.Choices are: 'ne' 2-Tail (default) 'gt' Right tail: the alternative to independence is that there is positive association between the variables. 'lt' Left tail: the alternative hypothesis is that there is negative association between the variablesOutput: P-valueUse: P = FisherExtest(Observed,'ne')Please, use the following reference:Thorvaldsen, S. , FldoDE, T. and Willassen, N.P.
