Abstract: The bias invariant has been used to distinguish between the homotopy types of $ 2$-complexes. In this note we show that two finite, connected $ 2$-complexes $ X$ and $ Y$ with isomorphic fundamental groups and the same Euler characteristic have the same bias invariant if and only if there is a map $ f:X \to Y$ which is a homology equivalence $ {\pi _1}f$ and $ {H_2}f$ are isomorphisms).
