No, The (log) Weibull is the only probability distribution for which this is true. It's a good idea to consider multiple probability distributions, as you have done. but reporting the regression results is not enough. Have you evidence that these distributions fit the data? (using a -linktest- or diagnostic plots, for example); that one fits any better or worse than the others? You can compare directly the likelihoods of the log-logistic and log-normal, and those of the log-normal and Weibull models. For hazard ratio models, I rarely see anything but a Cox model these days, because the Weibull has a very restrictive shape. Patrick Royston's -stpm- (from SSC) offers a flexible parametric version. For the log-linear regression models , the generalized Gamma in Stata has the most flexible shape, and its likelihood can be compared directly to those of the Weibull and log-normal. See: Stephen Jenkins's book ?Survival Analysis?, available from his website (http://www.iser.essex.ac.uk/teaching/degree/stephenj/ec968/pdfs/ec968lnotes v6.pdf ). -Steve On Wed, May 13, 2009 at 7:16 PM, Emory Morrison <Morrison@soc.msstate.edu> wrote: > I am reporting different specifications of event history models within the same paper. > > In some of the models (for example the log logistic specification and the log normal specification) stata reports coefficients as time ratios. > > In the Weibull model stata report coefficients as hazard ratios. > > While the direction of effects are clearly inverted in these two ways of reporting the coefficients, I need to know if these coefficients are precisely inverse.
