This article evaluates power and Type I error probabilities for a modified Fisher exact test for homogeneity of response probabilities in 2 x 2 tables. The continuity-corrected Fisher statistic is more powerful than the uncorrected Fisher exact test, while it is less often nonconservatively biased than the Pearson chi-square. (Author/RD)
