It is interesting that when the poisson regression is used with the auto data (see below under Roger Harbord wrote:) and the

-predict predn, n-

command is used to predict the number of events, the predicted number of events for line 71 of the data is 1.789. Although the poisson regression can make predictions greater than one, does this imply that when using poisson regression to estimate relative risks that it should not be used for estimating the probability of the event?

If so, how would the probability of an event be estimated?

Kind regards, Garry
