Comment from the Stata technical group

Meta-analysis is a statistical tool to systematically present new research results in the proper context, given all previous related work. This text is a collection of articles that serve to educate the reader on all the relevant terminology and to bring the reader up to speed on the continuously growing methodology in meta-analysis. By using methods of meta-analysis, researchers may decrease bias and increase the precision of their treatment effects, thus reducing the probability of type I and type II errors and, in the process, making the acceptance of new treatments more timely.

The third edition has 12 new chapters covering topics like missing data, network meta-analysis, and dose—response meta-analysis.The remaining chapters from the second edition have been rewritten to reflect recent updates in the literature. The book begins with a chapter highlighting the history and strengths and limitations of systematic reviews and meta-analysis. It is then followed by a section (six chapters) on principles and procedures in systematic reviews, a section (seven chapters) on meta-analysis with a strong emphasis on methodology, and a section (six chapters) on conducting systematic reviews for specific study designs. The last three sections of the book deal with Cochrane and the GRADE approach (two chapters), innovations in and the future for systematic reviews (two chapters), and computer software for meta-analysis (three chapters), with one chapter dedicated to the community-contributed Stata commands and the official meta suite introduced in Stata 16.

Stata datasets and additional materials used in the text are available from the book’s website: www.systematic-reviews3.org.
