    Can I test linear trend in a set of point estimates along with their standard errors?




    Hi,

    I have the following data as an example:

    time mean s.e.
    1 .2 .001
    2 .3 .001
    3 .4 .002
    4 .5 .002
    ...

    I would like to test if there's a linear trend in the "means" over "time".
    Can anyone suggest how I can do it?
    Your help will be greatly appreciated.

    Sunny

    Thanks BGM. If I fit a model with "mean" as the outcome and "time" as the predictor, how do I make use of the standard error of the means?

    Do you have a reference for something like this? I've only run models on raw data before and have never fit a model with estimates. Is this called meta-analysis? It will be great if there's a book or paper I can refer to for the method. Thanks so much.
