PublicationBias: Sensitivity Analysis for Publication Bias in Meta-Analyses
Performs sensitivity analysis for publication bias in meta-analyses (per Mathur & VanderWeele, 2020 [<https://osf.io/s9dp6>]).
These analyses enable statements such as: "For publication bias to shift the observed point estimate to the null,
'significant' results would need to be at least 30-fold more likely to be published than negative or 'nonsignificant'
results." Comparable statements can be made regarding shifting to a chosen non-null value or shifting the confidence
interval. Provides a worst-case meta-analytic point estimate under maximal publication bias obtained simply by conducting
a standard meta-analysis of only the negative and "nonsignificant" studies.
