... The -glm- command you have used is: xi:glm IOTFnew highested_2 i.highested_2*IOTFnew, family(binomial) link(log) eform If this is indeed the syntax you have used, then there are a couple of obvious problems. 1. The dependent variable is IOTFnew, but this also appears as an independent variable. 2. The independent variable, highested_2, is entered both as a continuous variable and as a categorical variable, i.highested_2. So I would suggest you try: xi:glm IOTFnew i.highested_2, family(binomial) link(log) eform ______________________________________________ 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) 9224-2701 Fax: (08) 9224 8009 email: Kieran.McCaul@uwa.edu.au http://myprofile.cos.com/mccaul http://www.researcherid.com/rid/B-8751-2008 ______________________________________________ If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made.

This if the syntax I have used: xi:glm IOTFnew highested_2 i.highested_2*IOTFnew, family(binomial) link(log) eform IOTFnew is the dependent variable (child weight status - 2 categories) and highested_2 the independent (4 categories) and below is the response I am getting i.highested_2 _Ihighested_1-4 (naturally coded; _Ihighested_1 omitted) i.high~2*IOTF~w _IhigXIOTFn_# (coded as above) note: _Ihighested_4 dropped because of collinearity Iteration 0: log likelihood = -130.92025 (not concave) Iteration 1: log likelihood = -130.92025 (not concave) Iteration 2: log likelihood = -130.92025 (not concave) Iteration 3: log likelihood = -130.92025 (not concave) Iteration 4: log likelihood = -130.92025 (not concave) Iteration 5: log likelihood = -130.92025 (not concave) Iteration 6: log likelihood = -130.92025 (not concave) Iteration 7: log likelihood = -130.92025 (not concave) Iteration 8: log likelihood = -130.92025 (not concave) Iteration 9: log likelihood = -130.92025 (not concave) Not sure where I am going wrong? I have tried a few variations but don't seem to be getting very far, Many thanks again, kind regards, Amy ---------------------------------------- > Date: Thu, 20 Aug 2009 15:00:33 +0200 > From: evans.jadotte@uab.es > Subject: Re: st: log binomial regression - categorical independent variables > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > > Amy Jennings wrote: >> Hi >> >> I am currently using stata to estimate prevalence ratios (or risk ratios as I think stata refers to them) using log binomial regression with the glm function.
