metafor (1.8-0)

Meta-Analysis Package for R.

The metafor package provides a comprehensive collection of functions for conducting meta-analyses in R. The package includes functions to calculate various effect size or outcome measures, fit fixed-, random-, and mixed-effects models to such data, carry out moderator and meta-regression analyses, and create various types of meta-analytical plots (e.g., forest, funnel, radial, and L'Abbe plots). For meta-analyses of 2x2 tables, proportions, incidence rates, and incidence rate ratios, the package also provides functions that implement specialized methods, including the Mantel-Haenszel method, Peto's method, and a variety of suitable generalized linear (mixed-effects) models (i.e., mixed-effects (conditional) logistic and Poisson regression models).
