Jackson et al. (2015) present moment-based approximate confidence intervals (CIs) for the between-study variance, τ, in random-effects meta-analysis. In the context of meta-regression, their model is Yi xi ∼N xi β; σi þ τ ; where Yi is the estimated effect from Study i (i= 1, 2,..., n), xi is the 1 × p vector of covariates associated with Study i, β is the corresponding vector of regression coefficients, σi is the within-study variance of Yi, and τ 2 is the between-study variance (in a meta… CONTINUE READING
