hi maarten,

thank you for your prompt response. just been to 'findit meta' again in case i missed finding the thing that i need the day before but i still could not find what i need amongst all that. i do use meta/metan and their ancillary do's including metacum, metainf, etc but to my knowledge 'meta-prevalence' or even 'meta-proportion or 'meta-probability' is not one that is available (seeing that essentially prevalence is a probability or a proportion). i stress again that i could be blinkered and would therefore appreciate further advice/input from statalisters.

i also checked the textbook you mentioned on amazon where they allowed a peek at the index/contents, again same issue - it addresses the usual meta-analysis of effect size or mean differences but not prevalence or proportion per se.

so i am at the moment still looking for further advise/help.

thank you once again.

kind regards,
bw
