Dear metafor users,

I read that paper recently: Stewart et al. (2012) Statistical analysis of individual participant data meta-analyses: a comparison of methods and recommendations for practice. PLOSOne e46042. IPD meta-analysis models can be fitted with one- and two-stage models. In the M&M of that paper, the authors report that they used the lme4 package for the one-stage model and the metafor package for the two-stage model (see page 3). I couldn’t contact the authors to get more information.

I have the raw data from several studies from our laboratory and would like to fit a one-stage IPD meta-analysis model. Can it be done with metafor using the rma.mv function and how to do it ?

Thanks in advance,

Roger ☺
