Meta-Regression Analysis

Meta-regression analysis is the statistical analysis of all relevant and comparable research on a specific scientific issue or, in other words, it is quantitative research synthesis. We seek to estimate genuine empirical effects, to understand research heterogeneity and to correct specification and selection biases endemic in economics and the social sciences.

The below datasets are open access. However, it is imperative that any paper or report involving these data contains a full citation to these authors and their published work.

As of the 21st of January 2014, the dataset contained 13,653 individual estimates from 1,193 empirical studies.

For further details on the data please contact either Chris Doucouliagos or the authors directly.
