1. All existing meta commands works
2. No new commands for meta-analysis (alas)
3. Lets hope that metan (Stata 7 graphics) or something equivalent
some day will be updated to Stata 8/9 graphics- alternatives now
include, but are somewhat more limited or difficult to use: meta-lr,
ecplot, metagraph .
The -eclplot- package (downloadable from SSC) plots general Stata 8 plots
of estimates and confidence limits, and can be used to produce Cochrane
forest plots (with symbols weighted by study size). The -metaparm-- package
(also downloadable from SSC) can be used to produce the summary confidence
intervals, if you already have a dataset with 1 observation per study
confidence interval and data including the estimates and standard errors of
the study-specific effects.
Hope this helps.
