Introduction Meta-analysis of Two Effect Sizes Meta-regression References
Systematic Review is a method of searching, selecting, cataloguing, and summarising research results to produce Evidence to guide clinical decision making. Meta-analysis is the mathematical component of Systematic Review, providing algorithms to make sense and decisions from the vast amount of information obtained.

Meta-analysis itself is a very large and developing subject, and this page covers only meta-analysis of Effects Size (ES) and its Standard Error (SE), mostly applying to data and comparison between two groups. Meta-analysis for prediction studies are separately presented in the Meta-analysis for Predictions Explanation Page

The next panel will discuss meta-analysis as it is commonly used, analysing and combining sets of data of similar studies from multiple sources. The algorithms used are as presented in the Meta-analysis for Comparing Two Unpaired Groups Program Page , and the example used to demonstrate the procedures are the same as the default example data from that page.
