Dear experts,
I see the rma() in metafor package can run a random-effects meta-analysis with inverse sampling variance (say vi) as weights (setting weights = 1/vi). I wonder about the formula used to calculate the variance (or standard error) of the overall mean in this model. I would be grateful if someone can provide the corresponding estimator.
