odds ratio in Fisher's exact test?

#1
Hi,

I ran a fisher's exact test in SAS, in the output they show you the odds ratio and relative risk estimates. Can I use these estimates to interpret the results even though it was an exact test or am I limited to using only the p value? I am asking because supposedly with an exact test you don't use any test statistics, only a p value, but the output provides the regular output (Chi-square, Mantel-Haenszel Chi-square, etc.).

If you are using the exact test because of low cell counts (or expected values) then the exact p-value is the only measure you should examine. Odds ratios and relative risks are also biased estimates if cell counts are small.
