This is a wonderful, simple solution, and seems that it should work for my analyses. Except, when I run the -statsby- command, although all the meta-analyses appear to run (and all 187 forest plots flash by on my screen), the resulting dataset is empty. There's a variable for each of the scalars stored in (r), but all of the values are missing. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

August 2010 17:43 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: st: RE: RE: Estout for metan? An alternative solution should be possible using -statsby-. You'd need to first append all your study data into a single large file and create an extra ID number to indicate which meta-analysis each study belongs to (you could probably do that with a single very long command of the form -append using file1 file2...file200, generate(metaid)- ). You should then be able to use -statsby- to automatically loop over the meta-analyses and collect the various results you want that -metan- returns in r().
