Figure 27 is a metagraph depicting the effect of haloperidol versus risperidone on response rates in patients with Sz. Sixteen trials (n=3,453) were pooled and no significant difference between groups was found (MD=0.94, 95 percent CI 0.87, 1.02); heterogeneity was not statistically important (p=0.13, I2=29%).
