Measuring Study-Specific Heterogeneity in Meta-Analysis: Application to an Antecedent Biomarker Study of Alzheimer's Disease.

Abstract

This article proposes several new indices that measure the heterogeneity for individual studies in a meta-analysis. These indices directly assess how inconsistent an individual study is compared to the rest of studies used in the meta-analysis, that is, how much impact the specific study has on the scientific conclusion of the meta-analysis and further on… (More)
