Dear listers,

Does anyone know how METAN estimates the between-study variance
(random-effects model)? MM? ML or RML?
-metan- uses DerSimonian & Laird's method of moments estimator for the
between-study variance.

DerSimonian R, Laird N.  Meta-analysis in clinical trials.
Control.Clin.Trials 1986;7:177-188.

Roger.
