Hi All,

Page 13 of *THIS ARTICLE
 (*top of the page*) recommends that if a *continuous moderator *varies
both within and across studies in a meta-analysis, a strategy is to break
that moderator down into two moderators by:

*(a)* taking the mean of each study (between-cluster effect),

*(b)* centering the predictor within each study (within-cluster effect).

BUT what if my original moderator that varies both within and across
studies is a *"categorical" *moderator?

I appreciate an R demonstration of the strategy recommended.
