<> Dan, you do not even apply -xi- to your dependent in the lines *** -char flushot[omit] 2

Hello, all ...I am running Stata10/SE, and am doing a series of multinomial logisticregressions.It's clear that Stata uses information from the char ageg[omit] 3instruction (for example) when setting up the explanatory variables. Butsuch is not the case for the dependent variable.Again for example, the variable flushot is dichotemous with values 1,2referring to yes,no.-char flushot[omit] 2-xi: svy: mlogit flushot i.adjsmoker i.ageg i.rostsex i.myrace i.my_incomei.my_ed i.my_dwell i.placepar , rrproduces a regression in which (flushot==Yes is the base outcome)-xi: svy: mlogit flushot i.adjsmoker i.ageg i.rostsex i.myrace i.my_incomei.my_ed i.my_dwell i.placepar , rr b(2)produces a regression in which (flushot==No is the base outcome)Am I out of luck is hoping that Stata will use the default referencecategory when the variable is used as a dependent variable?Dan Waldo * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
