Stata 18 offers two new features in meta-analysis: multilevel meta-analysis and meta-analysis for prevalence. The new commands meta meregress and meta multilevel perform multilevel meta-analysis. meta meregress fits general multilevel meta-analysis models, which include random intercepts and random coefficients, and models assume different covariance patterns between the random effects. meta multilevel provides a convenient way to fit multilevel random-intercepts meta-analysis models, which are common in practice. Many postestimation features, such as test and margins, are also available.

Also, by popular request, the meta suite now supports meta-analysis of one proportion, or prevalence. All standard meta-analysis features are supported, including forest plots and heterogeneity, subgroup, and cumulative analyses.
