Dear Jonathan,

You mention an example in the metan documentation. Do you mean the recent
book "Meta-analysis in Stata:....". Can you point to this example more
specifically? 
And more generally, are there any studies you are aware of that meta-analyze
regression coefficients?

Many thanks,

Yiannis Spanos

Hi - yes this is fine - you simply enter the data as the regression 
coefficient and its standard error from each study. You can find an example 
in the metan documentation.

Best wishes

Jonathan
