  1. ***p < .001. Statistical significance indicates the effect size estimate is significantly different from zero. Note. ES = effect size estimate, 95% CI = 95% confidence interval of the pooled effect size estimate; n = the number of effect size estimates in the subgroup; CE = community engagement. Heterogeneity statistics for the meta-analysis: QB (3) = 4.74, p = .19; QW (101) = 96.79, p = .60.
