|Title:||Estimating Common Mean and Heterogeneity Variance in Two Study Case Meta-Analysis|
|Published:||April 01, 2012|
|Abstract:||The relative behavior of estimators of the common mean and of the heterogeneity variance in the simplest random effects model of meta-analysis is explored. A simple estimator improving on the DerSimonian-Laird procedure is derived.|
