This course is aimed at statisticians and researchers in the fields of medicine, health, environmental, social and psychological sciences. It may also be of interest to postgraduate students and academics.
The course offers an introduction to the basic ideas of meta-analysis, including traditional methods for combining results from different studies, for both discrete and continuous measurements. In addition, this course includes new, more efficient methods based on variance stabilisation. This unified approach leads to more accurate confidence intervals for effect sizes in both individual and combined studies. A package of R functions will be provided.
The course is based on the book Meta Analysis: A Guide to Calibrating and Combining Statistical Evidence (Wiley Series in Probability and Statistics) by Elena Kulinskaya, Stephan Morgenthaler, and Robert G. Staudte (Paperback, 2008). Each participant in the course will receive a copy of this book.
