Roger - So in your proposed -somersd- analysis, would you use within, between or vonmises comparisons? With a continuous outcome, I would think that if you want to "remove" the twin effect, the comparisons should be within-cluster. However with a dichotomous predictor and outcome, there might be too many pairs with both responses the same, giving essentially no information. So in view of this would the vonmises comparisons with clustered standard errors be the best way? Or perhaps just between-cluster comparisons?

However, as we are sampling twin pairs from a population of twin pairs, I would still cluster by twin pair, whether I was using -clogit- or -somersd-. The -somersd- method has the advantage that it outputs a difference between proportions. I think more people understand those than understand odds ratios, although odds ratios are useful for estimating relative risks in a case-control study.

For this analysis, I'm just interested in the men as individuals, are their right and left sides different. If I had a continous outcome (and no twinship to consider), I'd use a paired t-test. But the sample happens to be (for other reasons) twins, so I need to adjust errors (p-values) for the correlation between twins. Pair Twin Left Right ----------------------------- 1 1 1 0 1 2 1 1 2 1 0 0 2 2 1 0 something like that, where I wan't to compare Left and Right, and Pair is a nuisance variable to me. thank you!

You can make the same argument for a dichotomous response. In this case the difference will be -1, 0, or 1. You could do a t-test on this (variance would be slightly off) or you could look at the table of responses and test if the proportion of -1s is the same as the proportion of +1s. May need to do this by hand, but should be simple. What is the clustering variable if not pairs? Tony Peter A.

[In this case, is a finding more common on the left side of the spine, compared to the right.] The problem is that the subjects are twins, in this analysis a nuisance parameter, but svyset or cluster(pair) are not options for mcc. For continuous outcomes I can get the equivalent of a paired t-test by computing the difference and then getting the p-values from the intercept in reg difference, cluster(pair) but I've not come up with anything along these lines either. Any guidance would be appreciated, thanks! -Laura ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Laura E.
