Meta-analysis is a procedure used in statistics
where the results of numerous studies are
mathematically combined in order to improve
the reliability of the results. Studies chosen
for inclusion in a meta-analysis must be
sufficiently similar in a number characteristics
in order to accurately combine their results.
Mumbo jumbo is the phenomenon that occurs
in Jan Drew's mind whenever she fails to understand
something. It generally results from a lack of
intelligence and/or education.
