Meta-analysis and power : some suggestions for the use of power in research synthesis.

Muncer, S. J. and Craigie, M. and Holmes, J. (2003) 'Meta-analysis and power : some suggestions for the use of power in research synthesis.', Understanding statistics., 2 (1). pp. 1-12.


The importance of statistical power is under recognized both in single study research and meta-analysis. The power of a study is the probability that it will lead to a statistically significant result. A simple method of establishing the adequacy of the power of meta-analysis is suggested and examples from 2 meta-analytic studies that may have produced inaccurate results are provided. Suggestions are made for changes in the protocol of meta-analytic studies that highlight the importance of power analysis.
