Dear listers,

Does anyone know how METAN estimates the between-study variance
(random-effects model)? MM? ML or RML?

thx a lot for any information.


Regards,

Tiago

I'm not sure what exactly are you looking for but in the metan help file is written:
random specifies a random effects model using the method of
DerSimonian & Laird, with the estimate of heterogeneity being taken
from the Mantel-Haenszel model

You can always check the ado file to see how radom effects model is calculated.
