I would like to explore the method mentioned by Hamza et al (2008). The
binomial distribution of meta-analysis was preferred to model within-study
variability. Journal of Clinical Epidemiology, Volume 61, Issue 1, January
2008, Pages 41-51

The authors compared an exact likelihood approach to the standard method
that approximates the within-study variability of a proportion by a normal
distribution


They comment that main packages are able to do that, indluign SAS, R AND
S-plus. Hence, is there a way to perform such analysis using Stata?
