Members of the Statistical Methods Group


This is the administrative and scientific meeting of the Statistical Methods Group (SMG). A brief update will be provided on developments in the SMG. This will be followed by presentations on the arguments for and against excluding studies from meta-analyses on the basis of sample size. Wolfgang Viechtbauer (developer of the metafor package in R to conduct meta-analysis) will talk on using an alternative weighting scheme in the meta-analysis that may offer a solution for overcoming the issues of including small studies.
