The albatross plot
Description
The albatross plot is a graphical tool for presenting results of diversely reported studies in a systematic review. The plot allows an approximate examination of underlying effect sizes and the potential to identify sources of heterogeneity across studies. This is achieved by drawing contours showing the range of effect sizes that might lead to each P value for given sample sizes, under simple study designs. The Stata code to generate an albatross plot is available to download using the Stata package name albatross (type “ssc install albatross” in Stata to download).
