Abstract

Meta-analysis is a research method to synthesise previously obtained research results. It is best seen as a statistical approach towards reviewing and summarising the literature. This paper aims to introduce and critically review the research method of meta-analysis and to illustrate its potential use in applied economic policy analysis. Special attention will be paid to the possibilities for value transfer and the possibilities to improve the calibration of existing macroeconomic policy models.

Keywords: meta-analysis, value transfer, research synthesis

JEL Classification: B40, C80
