Re: st: Standard Error in logit
Nick winter is right, of course, and it is documented in the manual and a FAQ. However:
Being only a consumer of Stata output I wonder about the benefits of the Delta Standard error in -logistic-, in -logit, or-, and in other -eform- outputs. Obviously it is not used for calculation of confidence intervals; they are calculated with the original standard errors, in logistic: SE(ln(OR)). So wouldn't we be better helped with -logistic- displaying SE(ln(OR)) - with that as the header?
Now that we are here: Does anybody have any idea why -logistic- and other -eform- outputs avoid displaying the baseline constant? I know that I can produce it by -lincom _cons-, but I often need it (dependent on study design), so it would be nice if it were - or at least could be - included.
