Dear Carlo

Yes, it was written in version 9 so will work with any version of Stata past this. Note that Mike Bradburn's original ado file is included in the package as metan7, if you are using an older version of Stata.

Best wishes,
Ross

Oggetto: st: metan updated

Dear Stata users

Thanks to Kit Baum, an updated version of the meta-analysis command
_metan_  is now available on the SSC archive. To install within Stata,
type:

ssc install metan, replace

The update contains a new option _efficacy_, which displays results in
terms of vaccine efficacy. There are also some minor tweaks and one or
two  other options added- details below if of interest.

Best wishes,
Ross Harris


- I sq. in return list
- variable display format preserved for lcols() and rcols()
- abbreviated varlist now allowed for lcols() and rcols()
- between groups het. only available with fixed effect models (statistics
not valid for random effects models)
- nulloff option to get rid of null line
- rflevel(#) specifies the coverage (eg 90,95,99 percent) for the
confidence interval of the predictive distribution
- "nostandard" had disappeared from help file- back in
- warnings if any heterogeneity with fixed effect models (also for
between  group het if any sub group has het)
- removed the extra top line that appears in column labels
- when using aspect(), xsize and ysize used so inner bit matches graph
area- i.e., get rid of spaces for long/wide graphs
