If your program is actually calculating the CI around the HR and you're getting a negative lower bound, then you must be doing something wrong in the calculation. ______________________________________________ Kieran McCaul MPH PhD WA Centre for Health & Ageing (M573) University of Western Australia Level 6, Ainslie House 48 Murray St Perth 6000 Phone: (08) 9224-2140 Fax: (08) 9224 8009 email: kamccaul@meddent.uwa.edu.au http://myprofile.cos.com/mccaul _______________________________________________ The fact that no one understands you doesn't make you an artist. -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Michael McCulloch Sent: Saturday, 4 October 2008 11:18 AM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: Re: st: RE: survival analysis: an elementary question Sorry Kieran I wasn't clear.
