Abstract

After reviewing various methods commonly used to combine the results from several 2 X 2 contingency tables, Cochran [1954] suggested a new approach and test of significance. Although the method is general, it will for convenience be discussed against the background of clinical trials. Briefly, it consists of calculating a weighted average of the differences in efficacy between the two treatments in the various 2 X 2 tables, the weights being based on some consideration of optimality.
