Dear Statalisters,

if I had wage data for two years, say 1999 and 2000, and wanted a CI for the
growth rate of wages, would it be correct to let -ratio- calculate the ratio
between the two years (which would yield something like 1.0342, denoting a
3.42% growth rate), take the CI from ratio and subtract one? So if ratio
returned a CI of [1.023;1.044], would the CI for the growth rate be 2.3% to
4.4%? Or am I missing something?


Warm regards,
Martin Weiss
