Hi all,

I would like to run a meta-regression on proportions using the metareg command in Stata v12.1

I've seen that odds ratio, hazard ratio, etc. have to be log-transformed (log e or natural log) - which leads to use the betas from a previous regression model as effect sizes in metareg. 

But if the outcome of interest is a proportion, particularly failure rates computed from -strate ? A log-transformation (should write ln-transformation) doesn't make sense there?

Thanks for your help
