... I agree with Clive's comment regarding the use of step-wise regression. More to the point, however, why do you think that exponentiating the coefficients from a linear regression will give you odds ratios? ______________________________________________ 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.

I am looking at predictors for a variable slope, which is growth of a tumor per day. I have ran this model and using sw, pr(.2):regress slope smoker exercise bmi , eform(odds) I have reran the model, only multiplying the slope by 365.25 to get the growth per year. I did not think that this would change anything, yet it changes the odds ratios. I still get the same prob>f, r-squared, and adjusted r-squared. However, model and residual ss, df, and ms are different. Can someone please explain why my odds ratios are changing, yet the t and P>|t| are not?
