data(Berkey98)

#### ML estimation method
## Multivariate meta-analysis
summary( meta(y=cbind(PD, AL), v=cbind(var_PD, cov_PD_AL, var_AL),
              data=Berkey98, I2=c("I2q", "I2hm", "I2am")) )

## Multivariate meta-analysis with "publication year-1979" as the predictor
summary( meta(y=cbind(PD, AL), v=cbind(var_PD, cov_PD_AL, var_AL),
              x=scale(pub_year, center=1979), data=Berkey98,
              RE.lbound=NA) )

## Multivariate meta-analysis with equality constraint on the regression coefficients
summary( meta(y=cbind(PD, AL), v=cbind(var_PD, cov_PD_AL, var_AL),
              x=scale(pub_year, center=1979), data=Berkey98,
              coef.constraints=matrix(c("0.3*Eq_slope", "0.3*Eq_slope"),
              nrow=2)) )

#### REML estimation method
## Multivariate meta-analysis
summary( reml(y=cbind(PD, AL), v=cbind(var_PD, cov_PD_AL, var_AL),
              data=Berkey98,
              model.name="Multivariate meta analysis with REML") )

## Multivariate meta-analysis with "publication year-1979" as the predictor
summary( reml(y=cbind(PD, AL), v=cbind(var_PD, cov_PD_AL, var_AL),
              x=scale(pub_year, center=1979), data=Berkey98) )
