StATS: Meta-analysis for a diagnostic test (March 22, 2005) Category: Systematic overviews

What I originally wrote for this page has been replaced by

which gives general guidance about meta-analysis, and

which talks about the particular issues associated with diagnostic tests. Both pages still need a bit of work.

This page was written by Steve Simon while working at Children's Mercy Hospital. Although I do not hold the copyright for this material, I am reproducing it here as a service, as it is no longer available on the Children's Mercy Hospital website. Need more information? I have a page with general help resources. You can also browse for pages similar to this one at
