Re: st: Displaying system variables after a meta-analysis using'meta'

I have performed a meta-analysis using the 'meta' command and would like
to outfile the odds ratio, lower confidence limit, upper confidence limit
and fixed and random weights, for each individual study, to a raw file.
What are the names of the system variables for the odds ratio, lower ci,
upper ci and the weights? I intend to generate variables from these
system variables, collapse, and outfile. Is that correct?
It's probably going to be a little easier if you switch to use -metan-
instead of -meta- as -metan- generates new variables containing the weights
and CI limits. The most recent version of -metan- accepts the same input
variables in the same order as -meta- i.e. effect estimates and standard
errors. This is version 1.81 and is obtained by typing -ssc intall
metaaggr, replace-. Full documentation including names of the variables
left behind is available at
How you best handle the variables afterwards depends on what you want to
use them for which you know better than us.
