```Hello,
.. for meta-analysis of unadjusted OR I know the syntax but and for adjusted odds ratio ?
How to conduct using stata?
Thanks Vinicius.

use bcgtrial.dta, clear
list trialnam startyr tcases tnoncases ccases cnoncases , clean noob abbr(10)

metan tcases tnoncases ccases cnoncases, rr fixedi lcols(trialnam startyr) xlabel(0.1,10) favours(BCG reduces risk of TB # BCG increases risk of TB)

gen logRR = ln( (tcases /ttotal )/(ccases /ctotal ))
gen selogRR = sqrt(1/tcases +1/ccases -1/ttotal -1/ctotal )
metan logRR selogRR , fixed eform nograph

for meta-analysis of unadjusted

metan logRR selogRR , fixed eform
metan logor selogor , eform fixed label(namevare=trialnam, yearvar=startyr ) xlabel(.1,.5,1,2,10) force effect("Odds ratio")
