Comprehensive Meta-Analysis

Comprehensive Meta-Analysis (CMA) is a powerful computer program for meta-analysis. The program combines ease of use with a wide array of computational options and sophisticated graphics.

"I have used Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis since I was a student and it has been the basis for dozens of meta‐analysis publications since then. The strengths of the software include its intuitive approaches to statistical issues, ease of use, and clear presentation of the data. Journals appreciate that important changes in figures can be made rapidly and clearly. This has also been an excellent tool for teaching students and colleagues about conducting meta‐analysis ‐ students enjoy the clarity of presentation and ease of use. With all the ease of use, it is important to note that the software allows a variety of statistical approaches that may be difficult to implement in other software, from choices of metaregression effects to presentations of heterogeneity. For my group, this software is indispensable."

"CMA makes the complicated easy. I use it in my research, but in fact I've also used it in the clinic, to summarize evidence for treatment decisions."
