Description: This project, in conjunction with the corresponding paper, aims to provide researchers with a simple visual method to identify, quantify and describe heterogeneity in meta-analyses. The measure we focus our attention on is the Diamond Ratio (DR), which is the ratio between the length of the random-effects model confidence interval and length of the fixed-effect model confidence interval for the population effect. In this project, we provide examples and R code which may help researchers better understand and interpret the DR results.
