st: simulated data for logistic regression... remedial algebra help? |

I am trying to create a series of simulated data sets for use in logistic regression with the following properties: Mortality (outcome) remains constant. There is a single dichotomous independent variable whose odds ratio (coefficient) and proportion of positives can vary between the sets. It all comes down to solving for the intercept (`b0'), given the following relationships: probability_negative=invlogit(`b0’) probability_positive=invlogit(log(`odds’)+`b0’) `proportion_positive’*probability_positive+(1-`proportion_positive’)*probabi lity_negative=`mortality’ Sad to admit, but I am bumping up against the limitations of my algebra skills. I'd imagine this is trivial for many of you... i.e.: ************** clear set obs 1000 local odds=2 local proportion_positive= .10 local mortality = .05 gen test=uniform()<`proportion_positive’ /* ************solve for `b0' here************ */ gen probability_negative=invlogit(`b0’) gen probability_positive=invlogit(log(`odds’)+`b0’) gen died=uniform() < cond(test==0,probability_negative,probability_positive) logistic died test ************************ Thanks.
