A short guide and a forest pilot command (ipdforest) for one-stage meta-analysis
Kontopantelis, E. & Reeves, D.
This article describes a new individual patient data (IPD) meta-analysis post-estimation command, ipdforest. The command produces a forest plot, following an one-stage meta-analysis with xtmixed or xtmelogit. The over-all effect is obtained from the preceding mixed-effects regression and the study effects from linear or logistic regressions on each study which are executed within ipdforest. IPD meta-analysis models with Stata are discussed.
