Meta-analysis forest plot with a normally distributed data

Dear all,

I am a new user of SAS, can someone guide me through on how write the SAS code for a meta-analysis forest plot with a normally distributed data. I'm being given the trials, number of patients on each trial, mean and standard deviation.

Thanks

The support.sas web site has a sample Forest Plot

The support site also has a macro for creating commonly used Forest Plots

Both these examples use ODS Graphics, available starting with SAS 9.2.

Thanks for the post. The sample forest plot doesnot plot the fixed and random effect of meta-analysis.

The samples and macro are primarily to help you get started.  You can then customize the code to get the specific features you may want in the graph.  Smiley Happy
