Abstract

In non-human animals, the relationship between testosterone and aggressionis well established. In humans, the relationship is more controversial. Toclarify the relationship, Archer conducted three meta-analyses and found aweak, positive relationship between testosterone and aggression. Unfortunately, each of the analyses included only five to six studies. The aim of the present study was to re-examine the relationship between testosterone andaggression with a larger sample of studies. The present analyses are basedon 45 independent studies (N=9760) with 54 independent effect sizes. Only studies that reported a p-value or effect size were included in the analyses and the sample may underestimate the proportion of non-significant findings in the population. Correlations ranged from -0.28 to 0.71. The mean weighted correlation (r=0.14) corroborates Archer's finding of a weak positive relationship. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
