It's not clear from this description what you are modelling.  Is it
mortality rates?
Second, when you say that you have used aggregated data, is this data
that you have aggregated or was the data already in aggregated form?

Dear [Redacted],

short answer: I do not know! BTW, it is not clear to me why you want to
only my wisdom when you can have the entire list. So I am forwarding
topic to the list for you...


Dear Martin

I would like to ask the following question.

I have used poisson regression on aggrgregated data  with 2 covariates
(in a 
cohort of HIV positive pationts)

1.year of starting 3+ antiretroviral treatment (1997, 1998+)
2.time since starting 3+antiretrovirals (0-1, 1-2, 2+)

and I have predicted incident rates in this aggregated data using
option after the poisson model.

Now my question is if I want to have predicted incident rates for
starting 3+ arvs at 2000 and time since starting 3+ arvs , 3_4 years
is it correct to use the same predicted incident rate obtained for 
aggregated data and in this example use predicted incident rate for
and 2+?

It would be graitly apreciated if you could answer my question, Please
me know if you would like me to provid more details.

Thank you very much in advance,

Kind regards,
