Meta-Analysis in Theory and Practice

Editor: Martin Paldam, Aarhus University, Denmark

Abstract:

Meta-analysis is a quantitative survey of a literature that reports estimates of the same parameter. In economics it is highly needed as the typical literature publishes a wide range of results, which often differ significantly. Also, economists often work in fields that are highly politicized and where sponsors have strong interest. The meta-technique has developed tools to handle this situation, by estimating the best meta-average and by revealing biases. However, most of the tools are less than one decade old and they are still undergoing testing. The special issue Meta-Analysis in Theory and Practice aims at publishing both methodology and actual meta-studies.
