statsmodels.stats.meta_analysis.effectsize_smd(mean1, sd1, nobs1, mean2, sd2, nobs2)[source]

effect sizes for mean difference for use in meta-analysis

mean1, sd1, nobs1 are for treatment mean2, sd2, nobs2 are for control

Effect sizes are computed for the mean difference mean1 - mean2 standardized by an estimate of the within variance.

This does not have option yet. It uses standardized mean difference with bias correction as effect size.

This currently does not use np.asarray, all computations are possible in pandas.

Parameters:
mean1array

mean of second sample, treatment groups

sd1array

standard deviation of residuals in treatment groups, within

nobs1array

number of observations in treatment groups

mean2, sd2, nobs2arrays

mean, standard deviation and number of observations of control groups

Returns:
smd_bcarray

bias corrected estimate of standardized mean difference

var_smdbcarray

estimate of variance of smd_bc

Notes

Status: API will still change. This is currently intended for support of meta-analysis.
