What is the best way to do this? Is Q-test the right way, and if so, what Stata code should I be using for version 11.0? Thanks a lot!

. ssc install metan
. metan theta setheta, random

This will give you:
* a test for heterogeneity based on Cochran's Q statistic,
* I-squared, the proportion of variation in effect size attributable
to heterogeneity,
* an  estimate of the between-study variance tau-squared.
