COMBINE: Stata module to combine n, mean, and SD from two groups according to the Cochrane-recommended formula for meta-analyses
Abstractcombine is meant to be used by analysts performing meta-analysis whereupon it is sometimes necessary to combine size, mean, and SD from two groups (for example, two intervention groups). The Cochrane Collaboration provides a formula for this calculation in its handbook, but it is cumbersome to perform using a calculator, or by hand.
