Hi Wolfgang,

The best methods for binary rare events is controversial.

Some have argued for RD, but most opinion favors relative measures (RR, OR).

Yilei Yu and Lu Tian published the exactmeta package a few years ago for handling rare events with an exact fixed effect model (either RD or RR).

Will the metafor function permutest allows a similar analysis?
