Random Effect Model was used to perform meta-analysis of the studies. Cochran test and I-2 indicator were used to explore heterogeneity between the studies. Publication bias of the study was evaluated using Begg'test. Data were analyzed by STATA (version 14) software.Results: After a comprehensive search, 515 papers were extracted. After eliminating duplicates and final screening, 23 studies were selected and entered the meta-analysis phase after qualitative evaluation. The results showed that the prevalence of PTSD in flood victims is 29.48 (95 CI: 18.64-40.31, I-2 = 99.3, p-value < 0.001).Conclusion: The results of the present study showed that the prevalence of PTSD is relatively high in the flood victims.
