I understand you can get the log of the risk for each group (lnR1 and lnR2, for example) and their corresponding standard errors (se_lnR1 and se_lnR2). Consider the following approach: a) Get a large number of values from the distribution of the risk in each group using the -uniform- function: gen A = lnR1 + se_lnR1 * invnorm(uniform()) gen B = lnR2 + se_lnR2 * invnorm(uniform()) b) Calculate the relative risk using A and B gen rrisk=A/B c) get the values corresponding to the 0.025 and 0.975 percentiles of the distribution of "rrisk" local l025 = .025 * _N local u025 = .975 * _N These two values should correspond to a 95% confidence interval for the relative risk. Maybe other members of the list could comment on the appropriateness of this approach. I hope this help, Leonelo Bautista -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Michael Ingre Sent: Tuesday, November 02, 2004 11:43 AM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: Re: st: RRR with CI from logit model On 2004-11-02, at 18.19, Constantine Daskalakis wrote: > Look at the estimates and estimated standard errors for the different > situations in your example.

Is there a way to calculate RRRs with CIs directly from predicted probabilities with CIs instead?
