Description:  metafor: MetaAnalysis Package for R. A comprehensive collection of functions for conducting metaanalyses in R. The package includes functions to calculate various effect sizes or outcome measures, fit fixed, random, and mixedeffects models to such data, carry out moderator and metaregression analyses, and create various types of metaanalytical plots (e.g., forest, funnel, radial, L’Abbe, Baujat plots). For metaanalyses of binomial and persontime data, the package also provides functions that implement specialized methods, including the MantelHaenszel method, Peto’s method, and a variety of suitable generalized linear (mixedeffects) models (i.e., mixedeffects (conditional) logistic and Poisson regression models). Finally, the package provides functionality for fitting metaanalytic multivariate/multilevel models that account for nonindependent sampling errors and/or true effects (e.g., due to the inclusion of multiple treatment studies, multiple endpoints, or other forms of clustering). Network metaanalyses and metaanalyses accounting for known correlation structures (e.g., due to phylogenetic relatedness) can also be conducted.
