Forest plot, Advanced Statistics

A name sometimes given to the type of diagram generally used in meta-analysis, in which point estimates and confidence intervals are displayed for all the studies included in the analysis. An instance from meta-analysis of the clozapine v other drugs in treatment of schizo- phrenia is shown in the figure drawn below. A disadvantage of such kind of a plot is that the viewer's eyes are frequently drawn to the least significant studies, because these have the broadest confidence intervals and are graphically more imposing.
