Overview

This collection provides detailed descriptions of both standard and advanced meta-analytic methods and their implementation in Stata. Readers will gain access to the statistical methods behind the rapid increase in the number of meta-analyses reported in the social science and medical literature. The book shows how to conduct and interpret meta-analyses as well as produce highly flexible graphical displays. Using meta-regression, it examines reasons for between-study variability in effect estimates. The book also employs advanced methods for the meta-analysis of diagnostic test accuracy studies, dose-response meta-analysis, meta-analysis with missing data, and multivariate meta-analysis.
