Fisher’s exact test

Fisher’s exact test is employed to study the association between the two independent categorical variables in a contingency table.

Fisher’s exact test is used when the sample size is small (say, < 1000). The Chi-squared test is appropriate when the sample size is large. Fisher’s exact test is specifically applied when the expected frequencies are less than 5 in more than 20% of cells in a contingency table.
