This function generates the Q-Q plot for network meta-analyisis model.
object of class NMAoutlier.measures (mandatory).
Plot of Q-squared Mahalanobis distance for each study included in the network meta-analysis. Vertical axis provides the Q-squared Mahalanobis distance for each i study included in the network meta-analysis. Horizontal axis provides Q estimated quantiles (theoretical quantiles from the normal distribution). A reference line is fitted from the cartesian points of the two measures. The Q-Q plot can visualize studies that are away from the reference line (potiential outliers).
Q-Q plot for network meta-analysis has been introduced by Petropoulou (2020).
