The leave-one-out method is available in metainf() of *meta*.

For regression diagnostics provided by *metafor*, you have to conduct a 
meta-regression of your subgroup meta-analysis first.


m = metaprop(nlameanimal, ssizeanimal, author, data=prevalence_2020_noout,
              method="inverse", sm="PLOGIT", method.tau="DL", 
              byvar=lcmbi, tau.common=TRUE,prediction = TRUE)

mr = metareg(m)


Best wishes, Guido
