You are welcome, Philip. However it is dangerous to interpret each OR or RRR in isolation. Take for example a 2-level exposure (unexposed, exposed) ) and a three category outcome, with the following percentages, in order, Outcome: 1 2 3 unexposed: 10% 10% 80% exposed:: 2% 8% 90% If the unexposed group is the baseline predictor and outcome 1 is the baseline outcome, the OR for outcome 2 vs outcome 1 is: 4. So: the exposure must increase the probability of outcome 2, right? No! Outcome 2 has a lower percentage (8%) in the exposed group than in the unexposed group (10%) The lesson is that you must consider the whole pattern of predicted probabilities. -Steve On Fri, Sep 18, 2009 at 9:48 PM, Philip Burgess <philip.burgess.uq@gmail.com> wrote: > Steve; > > Excellent - it all reconciles.
