I have started by myselt but need feedback. by the commands lincom _Ilapscopii_1+ _IlapXtim_1_2 , hr lincom _Ilapscopii_1+ _IlapXtim_1_3 , hr I understand that this will give the estimates for the risk of laparoscopy for timeperiod 2 and 3. The estimate for timeperiod 1 is the baseline estimate from the model. The riskdifference is significantly higher in the third timeperiod. Is this correct? How can I make a test for the trend over time? perpostkir~k Odds Ratio P>z [95% Conf.
