For the Academic Instructor

With this program, the logic of meta-analysis comes alive. Use the program to demonstrate conceptual issues such as the impact of study weights on the combined effect, the implications of heterogeneity, and fixed effect vs. random effects models.

For the Graduate Student

Perform a basic analysis in fifteen minutes. Create and export a plot to serve as the framework for your results, and then use the program to fully understand the logic of analysis.

"Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis is an indispensable tool for efficient problem solving in meta‐analyses. Regardless of whether or not you are a statistician, the software leads you to the world of meta‐analysis quickly. Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis is extremely easy to use and understand and it is a terrific product."

Dr. Takeharu Yamanaka - Cancer Biostatistics Laboratory, National Kyushu Cancer Center, Japan

"I have now used Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis in five meta‐analyses and highly recommend it. Its structure and accompanying resources particularly assist researchers with clinical rather than statistical backgrounds to avoid important errors in data entry and analysis. Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis enables meta‐analysis methods recommended by leading statisticians and meta‐analysts to be used by researchers internationally."

Dr. Catherine Sherrington - Senior Research Fellow, The George Institute for Global Health, The University of Sydney, Australia

"I have used Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis for the past six years in my research activities. It has become a part of my research life. I use it for literature review, to compare and contrast differences in findings, and to search for insight in empirical studies. Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis helps me enhance my research productivity, efficiency, and quality."

Cody Ding - University of Missouri‐St. Louis

"Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis (CMA) is a must‐have tool for academic instructors, researchers, and statisticians alike. Developed by a strong team of highly recognized experts in the field, CMA meets all of your meta‐analysis needs and is easy to teach and easy to use. I would not attempt to ever conduct another meta‐analysis without using the CMA program, for the difference is between heaven and earth!"

Guili Zhang, Ph.D. - Asst. Professor of Research Methodology, Department of Curriculum and Instruction Editor, Journal of Curriculum and Instruction, Chair, American Educational Research Association Quantitative Dissertation Award Committee Project Director, IGERT Assessment Project, East Carolina University, Greenville, NC
