Hello,

I have performed a multinomial logistic regression, and would like to know how to interpret the relative risk ratio with respect to CONTINUOUS predictor variables?  For example, if I have a continuous predictor variable that has a relative risk ratio of 5.3 within a comparison group, does this mean that every time this variable increases by a single unit of measurement the probability of an observational outcome being the comparison group is 5.3 times more likely to occur vs. the base outcome group?

I have stata/SE 9.2, and the reference manual doesn't examine this issue.

thanks!
