Dear Louise, apart from reminding one of the already mentioned Stata routine (please, type - help metan -) as far as costs are concerned, I would strongly recommend you to take a look at Glick HA, Doshi JA, Sonnad SS, Polsky D. Economic Evaluation in Clinical Trials. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2007: 207-228. Another thought about a quick (and probably too much) dirty way for dealing with your issue might be to weight your data for the number of patients enrolled in each trials. Sorry I cannot be more helpful. I do hope that Someone else on the list will chime in with a smarter insight. Kind Regards, Carlo -----Messaggio originale----- Da: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Per conto di Louisa Lam Inviato: giovedì 13 novembre 2008 6.24 A: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Oggetto: Re: st: R: Pooled effects for continuous data Dear Carlo, Thanks for the information. It is very helpful to know that Stata can be used for meta-analysis. However, after reading through all the functions, I still couldn't find anything to caculate the pooled effect for 'medians and IQR' and the pooled effects for 'different in cost and its 95% CI'. For example for hospital length of stay(unit in days): Study 1 median: 45 IQR: 36, 50 Study 2 median: 32 IQR: 28, 40 Study 3 median: 17 IQR: 12. 22 Study 4 median: 28 IQR: 23, 38 Is there anyway to caculate an effect estimate and a 95% CI of the above 4 studies?
