I did something similar a while ago using -nlcom- on an estimated ordered ologit with -gllamm-. An example of how I did it is presented below using auto.dta.

// Michael

clear
sysuse auto

// Create level 2 ID
gen make2 = substr(make, 1, index(make, " "))
egen pick =tag(make2)
gen id=_n if pick
sort make2 id
replace id = id[_n-1] if id == .

// Make turn>40 a dichotomous predictor variable
gen turn40 = turn > 40

// estimate gllamm model on rep78 with turn40 as predictor

// Use local macros to temporary hold your input values
local pv1 = 1 // predictor value 1
local pv2 = 0 // predictor value 2
local cut = 11 // Choose cut point i.e. which level of the dependent variable you want to predict

// calculate log of the ratio of the two probabilities predicted from pv1/pv2
nlcom ln( (exp(`pv1' * [rep78]turn40 - [_cut`cut']_cons) / ///
(1 + exp(`pv1' * [rep78]turn40 - [_cut`cut']_cons))) / ///
(exp(`pv2' * [rep78]turn40 - [_cut`cut']_cons) / ///
(1 + exp(`pv2' * [rep78]turn40 - [_cut`cut']_cons))))

// Store the results from -nlcom-
matrix b = r(b)
matrix V = r(V)

// Values needs to be exponentiated to describe RRR
di "RRR: " exp(b[1,1])
di "Lower 95% CI " exp(b[1,1] - sqrt(V[1,1])*1.96)
di "Upper 95% CI " exp(b[1,1] + sqrt(V[1,1])*1.96)

I have looked at the gllamm manual. I just don't know how to write the
commands.

I want to know the probability of each ordered outcome conditional on a
categorical predictor variable being 1.

Then with the same command, I want to change the predictor variable to 0.

Then I would like to set up a relative risk of outcomes by creating a
ratio of the probabilities (1 vs 0).

Then I would like to come up with confidence intervals for those ratios.

I can do this in ordered logistic stata, but I can't do it with glamm
because I think I set up the syntax incorrectly.

Thanks.
