dear stata users,

thanks to kit baum, a new package called -funnelcompar- is available from SSC. the package was presented last week at the United Kingdom Stata Users' Group Meetings 2009

http://ideas.repec.org/s/boc/usug09.html

-funnelcompar- supports the use of funnel plots for institutional comparison, as suggested by david spiegelhalter. a scatter plot of an indicator values is plotted against a measure of their precision, tipically the sample size, together with a target line and control limits (contours), that narrow as the sample size gets bigger. the plot graphically tests whether each value of the indicator is extracted from a target distribution specified by the options.

-funnelcompar- is basically a Stata 8.2 package, even though the -exact- option requires Stata 10.0


finally, it might be appreciated by statalisters that the package was born from a statalist exchange last march
