How do you solve heterogeneity?

How to deal with heterogeneity?

  1. Check your data for mistakes – Go back and see if you maybe typed in something wrong.
  2. Don't do a meta-analysis if heterogeneity is too high – Not every systematic review needs a meta-analysis.
  3. Explore heterogeneity – This can be done by subgroup analysis or meta-regression.
