Description - Statistical Meta-Analysis with Applications by Joachim Hartung
This book combines the authors' experiences on the topic and brings out a wealth of new information relevant to the study of meta-analysis. Applications ranging from business to education to environment to health sciences in both univariate and multivariate cases are presented alongside and subservient to theory. The treatment of the common mean of univariate normal populations, tests of homogeneity, one-way random effects model, categorical data, recovery of inter-block information, and combination of polls is entirely new. A special feature includes the incorporation of detailed discussions on the computational aspects and related software to carry out statistical meta-analysis in practice. Most of the methods described can be understood and applied with a solid master's level background in statistics. Practitioners will benefit from the book owing to a host of worked-out examples from numerous and various contexts.
