Re: st: reporting odds for N categories
I have a cross sectional dataset which reports the health outcomes
and covariate information for patients belonging to Z clinics.
I am trying to compare the performance (ie. % of patients in a clinic
that failed health outcome) for each of the Z clinics, but can not
find a way that I can produce results suitable for graphing from
either the logistic or tabodds commands, as the reference group is,
by default, the clinic with the lowest numeric ID.
How can I set the reference category to the mean, so that I can graph
the odds of failing, controlling for A and B, for each of the Z clinics
in the dataset?
Sorry in advance if this is a really silly question!
The question is not silly.
Since you mention a reference category problem I assume that you want
odds ratios, not odds.
You may choose clinic 17 as the reference category by:
. char clinic[omit] 17
. xi: logistic failed A B i.clinic
On -char-, see [R] xi or -help xi-.
Hope this helps
