- 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 - mean2standardized 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.
Status: API will still change. This is currently intended for support of meta-analysis.
