Advances in Meta-Analysis (Statistics for Social and by Terri Pigott

By Terri Pigott

The topic of the ebook is complex statistical analyses for quantitative learn synthesis (meta-analysis), and chosen useful concerns when it comes to study synthesis that aren't coated intimately within the many latest introductory books on study synthesis (or meta-analysis). complicated statistical matters are coming up extra often because the basic learn that's summarized in quantitative syntheses itself turns into extra advanced, and as researchers who're carrying out meta-analyses develop into extra formidable within the questions they need to deal with. additionally as researchers have won extra adventure in accomplishing learn syntheses, a number of key concerns have endured and now seem primary to the firm of summarizing research.

Specifically the ebook describes multivariate analyses for a number of indices universal in meta-analysis (e.g., correlations, influence sizes, proportions and/or odds ratios), will define the right way to do energy research for meta-analysis (again for every of the several different types of learn end result indices), and examines matters round examine caliber and learn layout and their roles in synthesis. for every of the statistical subject matters we'll research different attainable statistical types (i.e., mounted, random, and combined types) that may be followed by way of a researcher. In facing the problems of research caliber and study design it covers a variety of particular subject matters which are of huge predicament to investigate synthesists. in lots of fields a present factor is the best way to make feel of effects while experiences utilizing a number of diversified designs seem in a examine literature (e.g., Morris & Deshon, 1997, 2002). In schooling and different social sciences a serious element of this factor is how one may perhaps include qualitative (e.g., case research) learn inside a synthesis. In medication, similar matters challenge no matter if and the way to summarize observational reports, and whether or not they will be mixed with randomized managed trials (or no matter if they need to be mixed at all).

For each one subject, incorporated is a labored instance (e.g., for the statistical analyses) and/or a close description of a broadcast learn synthesis that bargains with the sensible (non-statistical) matters lined.
