Hi,

Sorry for a mundane question.  I need to calculate age-standardized
proportional mortality ratios (PMRs).  I have a poisson dataset and I'm
calculating SMRs using both poisson & negative binomial regression
commands. I also want to calculate PMRs to check my SMRs.  I need age
adjusted PMRs.  I can not find anything in the Stata manuals or online
that offers Stata code for PMRs.  I want to caluclate many PMRs and
Proportional cancer mortality ratios across many different cancer sites,
to do this  in Excel would take a long time to hand enter my data.

Is this possible to do in Stata?  

Thank you for any guidance you may have,

Lara
