About

This is a Meta-Analysis package.

This module was designed to perform some Evidence-based medicine (EBM) tasks, such as:

  • Combining effect measures (OR, RR, RD for count data and MD, SMD for continuous data);
  • Heterogeneity test(Q/Chi-square test);
  • Subgroup analysis;
  • Plots drawing: forest plot, funnel plot, etc.

Statistical algorithms in this software cited from: Jonathan J Deeks and Julian PT Higgins, on behalf of the Statistical Methods Group of The Cochrane Collaboration. Statistical algorithms in Review Manager 5, August 2010.
