Abstract.   We present a revised version of the metareg command, which performs meta-analysis regression (meta-regression) on study-level summary data. The major revisions involve improvements to the estimation methods and the addition of an option to use a permutation test to estimate p-values, including an adjustment for multiple testing. We have also made additions to the output, added an option to produce a graph, and included support for the predict command. Stata 8.0 or above is required.
