Description

We report the results of a meta-analysis conducted to examine possible biases in the uncertainty values published in papers by the LHC experiments. Due to limited availability of computer readable data, we perform this analysis using custom developed python code that extracts the information from the vector graphics source files of the plots in the papers. The aim is to compute the percentages of the data points scattered within 1-sigma and 2-sigma bands of the plots and verify whether the measured percentages agree with statistical norms assuming unbiased estimations of the uncertainties.
