Over the past few decades, meta-analysis has been suggests because the de facto statistical procedure for summarizing the results from a scientific review and appraisal of existing data on a particular topic. In meta-analysis, estimates of interest (e.g., for a selected treatment effect [3] or diagnostic test-outcome association) are obtained from individual studies then combined into a weighted average. Such quantitative data synthesis potentially increases statistical power to detect genuine associations or effects, to research sources of variation within and across studies, and to answer questions that weren't posed by individual studies.
