The use of meta-analysis in microbiology may facilitate decision-making that impacts public health policy.

The survey to estimate extent of the use of meta-analyses in microbiology shows the remarkable growth in the use of this research methodology, from a minimal Asian output to a level comparable with those of Europe and North America in the last 7 years.
