Quality assessment

This review has clear inclusion criteria and a comprehensive search for published literature. The authors use appropriate methods for analysis and present findings transparently and comprehensively. However, the while the search strategy covered key sources of published literature and involved contacting experts for additional studies the authors did not search sources of grey literature and this is an important limitation. Finally, it is not clear if there were any unit of analysis errors in the included studies, and if so, whether the authors addressed this.
