I understand you can get the log of the risk for each group (lnR1 and lnR2,This is a very neat solution. I will try it today and see how it performs. To me it looks like a feasible "bootstrap" approach. But then, I'm not a statistician. I think though that the code needs to be slightly modified to describe risks:

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,

a)

gen random_a = log_odds_se * invnorm(uniform())

gen random_b = log_odds_se * invnorm(uniform())

gen risk_a = exp(log_odds_a + random_a) / (1 + exp(log_odds_a + random_a))

gen risk_b = exp(log_odds_b + random_b) / (1 + exp(log_odds_b + random_b))
