The purpose of this study is to conduct a meta-analysis of 18 papers that can be verified among the papers on the subject of TPM. Five hypotheses were set for the analysis and meta - analysis was carried out with CMA as presented in each research paper. As a result of analysis, I-square value is more than 75% in four hypotheses. Therefore, the null hypothesis that the size of the population effect is the same for all studies was rejected. The reason for the heterogeneity is that the research characteristics such as the distribution of the respondents, the study conditions, the study period, and the study area are different. In this case, a summary statistic of the individual studies that can be classified according to the characteristics of the research is needed to analyze the effect size difference. However, individual studies do not provide a summary statistic that can classify the effect differences, so it is not possible to analyze the causes of heterogeneity.
