Performing a Meta-analysis

A meta-analysis uses statistical methods to summarize the results of a systematic review.

  • Meta-analysis = study of studies
  • Meta-analyses use statistical methods to analyze the findings in multiple studies
  • Meta-analyses can include a pooled estimate and confidence interval for the treatment effect after combining all the studies; test for whether the treatment or risk factor effect is statistically significant and test for heterogeneity between the studies
