Re: st: different stcox output when used in a program |

Thanks Maarten! When I run the example exactly as defined, the coefficient is still returned. Is there some global option I need to define for Stata?

I'd like to learn how to obtain the hazard ratio within my simple program.<snip>. bootstrap, reps(1000): msmcox_stageIIThe reason is not that you call -stcox- from within a program, but that you use -bootstrap- on that program. -bootstrap- does not bootstrap the coefficients that are displayed, but the coefficients that are returned by -stcox-, and -stcox- returns the coefficients and not the hazard ratio. The hazard ratio is exp(coefficient), so if you want to bootstrap the hazard ratio you do: *---------------- begin example ------------- sysuse cancer, clear stset studytim, failure(died) xi: stcox i.drug age capture program drop test program define test, rclass xi: stcox i.drug age indeplist, local foreach var of varlist `X' { return scalar `var' = exp(_b[`var']) } end bootstrap age=r(age) _Idrug_2=r(_Idrug_2) /* */ _Idrug_3=r(_Idrug_3), reps(100): test *--------------- end example ----------------------- (For more on how to use examples I sent to the Statalist, see http://home.fsw.vu.nl/m.buis/stata/exampleFAQ.html ) (this example requires -indeplist- which can be downloaded from -ssc-) Hope this helps, Maarten ----------------------------------------- Maarten L.
