Thanks once more to Kit Baum an update to the -extfunnel- package is available from SSC. -extfunnel- creates graphical augmentations to the funnel plot to illustrate the potential impact of a new study on a meta-analysis.

To install the update, type

. ssc install extfunnel, replace

Or use the -adoupdate- command.

Changes:

o Couple of minor bug fixes when missing values were present
o Matrices of effect estimates, standard errors and status codes now returned in r()
o scheme option added allowing grayscale or color choices

Thanks to Rob Herbert and Manuela Ferreira of the George Institute for Global Health for suggestions for improvement and testing of the command.

A draft Stata Journal paper currently under review can be found here:
