Figure 18 is a metagraph depicting the effect of risperidone on response rate in disruptive behavior disorder. The two studies in this graph both favored risperidone. The total sample size was 140 patients. The results of studies were not pooled due to substantial heterogeneity (p = 0.02, I2 = 81 percent).
