The meta-analyses were performed using Stata 15.0, metaprop command. Pooled prevalence and their 95% CIs were used to summarize the weighted effect sizes for each grouping variable in the study by using the binary random-effects model (the weighting took into consideration the sample sizes of the individual studies). Heterogeneity was evaluated using Cochran's Q statistic, the I2 index, and the tau-squared test. Sensitivity analysis was performed on the basis of outlier data. Funnel plot and Egger regression test were used to evaluate publication biases.
