Meta Analysis of Panel Data Generated by a Set of Randomized Controlled Trials

Robin Antoine, Ashok Sahai and Peter Chami

It is not uncommon to have access to panel data generated by a set of similarly randomized controlled trials. In this context, researchers often employ pooling methods to evaluate the efficacy of pharmaceutical regiments. One of the simplest techniques used to combine individual studies results is the fixed effects model. This assumes that a true effect is equal for all studies. An alternative and intuitively more appealing method, is the random effects model. The purpose of this study is to address the estimation problem of the fixed effects model. Furthermore, it presents a simulation study of an efficient estimation of a mean true effect using panel data and a random effects model in order to establish appropriate confidence interval estimation for both the models.
