Nick,

Thanks for your response. Do you know if there are any plans to 
implement an adjusted PAF estimator in future versions of Stata?

If not, is there a means of lobbying for implementation of such a 
routine in 'official Stata'?

Rockhill et al (Am J Public Health 1998; 88: 15-19) comment that 
errors in PAF estimation are common in published papers due to 
confusion over appropriate use of formulae for different types of 
data, especially in relation to valid estimation with covariate 
adjustment. Implementation of a valid and flexible post-regression 
estimator would surely address these problems. 

Thanks,
Roger
