Table 9 Scenario – Comparing the contexts of the included studies to the context specified in the review

From: The TRANSFER Approach for assessing the transferability of systematic review findings

Scenario: For each of the identified transferability factors you have selected, you record the characteristics of the included studies. You decide to use a dichotomous system in order to sort the studies more easily into subgroups related to the transferability factors: length of homelessness at baseline: <6 months, > 6 months; quality of usual housing services: high, low; climate: cold seasons, temperate (see Figure A below).
