Tools for Those Who Summarize the Evidence Base
in order to synthesize results from a set of multiple regression analyses from 6 separate cross-sectional samples, I would like to use the standardized regression slopes or beta coefficients ( standardized slope = unstandardized slope *sd_x/sd_y) for a (fixed or random-effects) meta-analysis. All analyses use the same set of covariates. I am not sure whether it would be adequate
A related question is whether it would be better to use other effect sizes than standardized regression slopes – what do you think?
