To clarify further where I think the problem may lie:

PHREG output notes "Number of Observations Read 2300" and "Number of Observations Used 2000" (300 have missing values for the dependent variable)

CLOGIT notes that 1710 observations (496 groups) were dropped because of all negative or all positive outcomes and our final number of observations is 290!

With this I wonder if comparing the two methods makes sense and which method (PHREG or CLOGIT) is preferable (if any)?

Thank you!
Margaret

I've seen examples of SAS PHREG and Stata clogit used on the same data at the following web site:

I'm attempting to use clogit and have a very basic question about the data format. It seems like it should be obvious but I'm getting very different answers than a colleague using SAS PHREG.

====================================================
Isn't SAS PHREG about proportional hazards regression
(Cox regression)? Stata's -clogit- performs conditional
logistic regression; in my understanding this is quite
a different analysis.
