METAGRAPH: Stata module to draw Forrest plot after meta command
AbstractThis command constructs the Forres plot after a meta-analysis. Either this command is run immediately after running the command meta (q.v.) or the user will have to input the combined estimate and confidence limits using the combined option. The graph requires the parameter estimates and standard errors as the first two variables in the varlist additional a third variable can be included that will be displayed next to the study identifiers specified in the id() option. This means that if required the sample sizes per study can be displayed or any other information. Note that the weights used to calculate the size of the study specific estimate symbol are inverse variance weights.
