I think the ads for the computersoftware should be removed
XPro is a free software package and so it is a good idea to have the link so that users can perform exact parametric methods at no cost.
I also agree that StatXact link may serve as an ad. Since it is a commercial software package the link is removed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sweeraha (talk • contribs) 14:29, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
- The text of the two articles isn't that similar, though they both need work. The topics aren't synonymous—'exact statistics' is a broader topic than 'exact test' as the former includes exact confidence intervals. Exact tests are a more straightforward topic than exact confidence intervals and usually encountered first so there may be merit in separate articles. So perhaps we could have an article on 'exact tests', one on 'exact confidence intervals', and a shorter one on 'exact statistics' introducing both? --Qwfp (talk) 10:54, 30 September 2008 (UTC)
- The articles aren't similar, I'm with Qwfp on this one. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 14:47, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
- I agree, they are two separate things. Removing the merge notice. ScienceApe (talk) 00:27, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
It appears that there is an incorrect reference. Based on my checking of the Journal, the following reference does not exist (or is incorrectly referenced):
- Mehta, C. R.& Patel, N. R. 1997. "Exact inference in categorical data". Biometrics, 53(1), 112-117.
It is possible the reference could be as follows:
- Mehta, C.R. and N.R. Patel, 1998. Exact Inference for Categorical Data. In P. Armitage and T. Colton, eds., Encyclopedia of Biostatistics (Chichester: John Wiley), pp. 1411-1422.
