After its release in Stata 16, the meta suite has gone through multiple updates based on users' feedback. For example, we added multivariate meta-analysis, Galbraith plots, and leave-one-out meta-analysis in Stata 17. Below, we highlight new features available through a free update for Stata 17 users.

  • meta forestplot and meta summarize can now construct prediction intervals for subgroup overall effect sizes in subgroup analysis by combining options predinterval and subgroup().
  • In forest plots, the default text displayed under the _id column for the heterogeneity statistics, the homogeneity test, and the significance test of the overall effect size can now be modified via options ohetstatstext(), ohomtesttext(), and osigtesttext(), respectively.
  • Similarly, in subgroup forest plots, the default text under the _id column can now be modified via options ghetstats#text(), gwhomtest#text(), gsigtest#text(), and gbhomtest#text().
  • The within-group significance tests for the group-specific overall effect sizes are now displayed by default on subgroup forest plots. These tests may be suppressed using option nogsigtests.
