You can combine the estimates to calculate the difference in two groups using bootstrapping technique as illustrated in Afifi, Ettner et al, Annu Rev Public Health.2007;28:95-111 The steps involved are: global indv male nonwite age income educyrs ins1 ins2 global pre income gen orig=$pre program define tpm *Run logit for any problem (eg, physican visit) Logit any $indv *Calculate predicted probability at original regressor values Preict p,p Egen sdinc=sd(income) Egen meaninc=mean(income) Gen ave=mean Gen high=mean+sd *Calculate the predicted probability when continous predictor (income) *is set to mean (or binary predictor (gender) to 0) Replace $pre=ave Predict p0, p * Calculate the predicted probability when continous predictor *(income) is *set to mean plus one sd Replace $pre=high Predict p1, p *Calculate relative risk associated with increase in income from mean *to mean+1sd gen rr = p1/p0 * Reset income back to original value replace $preg = orig * Conditional linear regression of outpatient costs among those with * any visits reg $depv $indv if any==1 *You will also have to consider log-transformation and smearing here *(see Afifi, Ettner et al, Annu Rev Public *Health.2007;28:95-111 or Manning, J Health Econ; 17: 283-95) * Calculate conditional expectation at original regressor values predict xb, xb * Calculate conditional expectation when income is set to the mean replace $preg=ave predict xb0, xb * Calculate conditional expectation when income is set to the mean *plus one standard deviation replace $preg=high predict xb1, xb * Calculate the difference in the conditional expectations (income set to mean vs. mean + SD) gen cdiff = xb1-xb0 * Reset income back to original value replace $preg = orig * Calculate unconditional expectation at original regressor values gen pred = p*xb * Calculate unconditional expectation when income is set to the mean gen pred0 = p0*xb0 * Calculate unconditional expectation when income is set to the mean + 1 SD gen pred1 = p1*xb1 * Compare means of actual visits and unconditional predicted visits at original regressor values sum $depv pred * Calculate difference in unconditional expectation for income at mean vs. mean + 1 SD gen udiff = pred1 ¨C pred0 * Do unconditional regression to reset sample to full sample for bootstrapping quietly reg $depv $indv end * Call the program and make sure it works tpm * Look at the key results su rr cdiff udiff * CREATE PROGRAM TO CALL TPM AND DO THE BOOTSTRAPPING program tpmboot, rclass * Call the program to run the two-part model and get the point estimates of interest tpm tempname y1 sum rr, meanonly scalar `y1' = r(mean) return scalar rrboot=`y1¡¯ tempname y2 sum cdiff, meanonly return scalar cdiffboot=`y2¡¯ tempname y3 sum udiff, meanonly scalar `y3' = r(mean) return scalar udiffboot=`y3¡¯ end use newdatasetname, clear * Set the seed first so that you can replicate the results if you rerun it later set seed 8 * Call the bootstrap program, specifying the number of repetitions * In a real study, you should use ¡Ý1000 repetitions if you want empirical confidence intervals * Specify a small number of repetitions first to test the program bootstrap ¡°tpmboot¡± r1=r(rrboot) r2=r(cdiffboot) r3=r(udiffboot), reps(10) -----Urspr¨¹ngliche Nachricht----- Von: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Im Auftrag von Tamara Pejovic Gesendet: Mittwoch, 22. August 2007 15:40 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: st: Two part model - How to combine models? Hi, I have a quick question. I have a response variables that is positively skewed and contain a substantial proportion of zeroes. Since a common method for analyzing this type of data is a two-part model I have the analysis of three stages: The first involved creating two sets of data from the original: one showing whether or not the problem is present and the other indicating the "level of the problem" when problem is present. The second stage involved modelling occurrence of problem, using logistic regression, and separately modeling the level data using ordinary regression. Finally, the third stage should be combining the two models in order to estimate the expected "level of the problem" for a specific set of values of possible predictors. My question is how to do this? Is it just enough to multiple probabilities using conditional probabilities rule? Does STATA have a modul for solving two-part models?
