there's an error in the data, Michael.

You've got 17 controls that failed (kpCtFail) and 13 that responded
(kpCtResp), so the total is 17+13=30.

Subject: st: -metan-: apparent calculation error in the graphical output

Dear Statalist members,
Using the data below (which can be run as one do-file),
when the -metan- command is run as written in this example,
an incorrect value appears in the graph for the -counts- data in only
*one* of the cells: control group total in study#4.
Instead of the value "40" which was input for the control group total in study # 4, the value "30" appears in the graph. All other -counts- data
are reported correctly.

Metan version:        (SJ9-2: sbe24_3)
Stata version:        Stata/IC 11.1 for Mac (64-bit Intel), Born 16
Jun 2010.
Machine:            MacBook Pro, 2.16 HGz Intel Core 2 Duo,
2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM memory
Operating system:    OS X 10.6.4

I'd appreciate any insights into this perplexing result.
