The increasing availability of individual participant data (IPD) in the social sciences offers new possibilities to synthesize research evidence across primary studies. Two-stage IPD meta-analysis represents a framework that can utilize these possibilities. While most of the methodological research on two-stage IPD meta-analysis focused on its performance compared with other approaches, dealing with the complexities of the primary data has received little attention, particularly when IPD are drawn from complex sampling surveys. Complex sampling surveys often feature clustering, stratification, disproportionate sampling, and multiple stages of sample selection to obtain nationally or internationally representative data from a target population. Furthermore, IPD from these studies are likely to provide more than one effect size. To address the complexities of the primary and meta-analytic data obtained from complex surveys, we propose a two-stage IPD meta-analytic approach and illustrate its utility. To aid meta-analysts who wish to utilize complex survey data, we present a sequence of steps and discuss the methodological decisions and options within. Given its flexibility and ability to deal with the complex nature of the primary data, the proposed two-stage approach opens up new analytical possibilities for synthesizing knowledge meta-analytically.

Purpose: Even though the government had taken many initiatives for the empowerment of minority women but the success of such initiatives is questionable. A strong tool for perfect empowerment requires financial independence and self-reliant, and this can be achieved only through financial support. With this intention, a present study was conducted to evaluate the impact of awareness and utilisation of various welfare schemes on the empowerment of minority women. Design/Methodology/Approach: A study was conducted in Karnataka by taking 388 minority women as a sample unit. Simple random sampling techniques were used to select sample units and primary data was collected using a structured questionnaire. Hypotheses are developed to support the primary objective and tested with simple regression analysis. Findings/Result: The study found that minority women have a very low level of awareness and utilisation of government welfare schemes which has adversely affected the overall development of minority women. This study suggested to take awareness programs for minority women in rural areas to achieve overall empowerment in India. Paper Type: Analytical Paper

Technological advancements have presented firms with an opportunity to use mobile payments to enhance their performance. This study explores the relationship between mobile payments and firm performance in Kenya. The moderating effects of demographics are also studied. Using primary data collected from 289 supermarkets based in Nairobi City County, we determine whether the use of mobile payment has enhanced firm performance as defined by profitability, operation costs, revenues and the number of customers served. Empirical results from logit regression analysis reveal that the use of a mobile to make payments in supermarkets directly impacts the performance of supermarkets. Additionally, consumer characteristics have a significant moderating effect on the relationship between mobile payments and profitability of supermarkets. We conclude that the use of mobiles to make payments in supermarkets in Kenya has acquired the requisite critical mass level to be in a position to influence revenues of these firms.
