Comment from the Stata technical group

Though originally written for researchers in Psychiatry, Meta-Analysis in Psychiatry Research, by M. B. Hanji, is a valuable resource for anybody interested in meta analysis.

The book starts by introducing the scope, history, and characteristics of these techniques. Then, there are several chapters dedicated to discussing every stage of the meta-analysis research, from forming a relevant question, criteria, and strategies to find and select studies, to applying different techniques, interpreting results, and even reporting the findings.

After describing several techniques for pooling different kinds of statistics such as means, odds ratios, or risk ratios, and for visualizing data and results via graphs such as funnel and forest plots, the book shows how to implement these techniques using several community-contributed commands in Stata.

The appendix shows a meta-analysis on the prevalence of schizophrenia in India, discussing every step of the study and showing graphs and results.

Most of the book is organized in small sub-sections in which the reader can easily find the information for each stage of the research.
