Dear Michael
Thank you for your email. and sorry about that.
I have to variables, say X and Y.
1. The X has two categories, let's say a and b, so you can calculate Mean
and SD for group *a* and group *b*.
2. The Y has two categories, let's say *c* and *d*. So you can calculate
Man and SD for group a and group d.
I have run a meta-analysis separately for both X and Y using the meta
package.
Now I want to run a met-analysis for X differences associated with Y. Is
it possible? or I need to consider other statistical procedures?
Here is the excel file
Thank you
Julie
