I.e., estimate glm model; predict daysmissed for exposed=1; predict daysmissed for the exposed group when exposed is set to 0; take difference of the [weighted] means of the predictions. Now my question is, how can I put confidence bounds on the difference in the mean predictions? I thank the group for any help it can offer. Best, Doug

--Your second suggestion would be an estimate of the average effect oftreatment (exposure, here) among the treated (ATT). For an overviewof possibilities, see Austin Nichols's 2010 conferencepresentations; his 2007 Stata Journal Causal Inference article; andthe 2008 Erratum, all linked at http://ideas.repec.org/e/pni54.html.Holding covariates at the means in non-linear models can bedangerous.

I have modeled the effect of exposure on absenteeism using svy: glm daysmissed exposure $covariates, l(log) f(poisson). I would like to estimate adjusted mean days missed for the exposed and control groups, but I'm not sure of the best way to deal with this in a non-linear model. There are a couple of methods I've encountered, and I would be grateful for some thoughts on the pros and cons of each. 1. Estimate glm model. Reset all covariates to their [weighted] sample means. Predict daysmissed when exposed=0 and when exposed=1. 2. Estimate glm model. Predict daysmissed for exposed=1. Predict daysmissed for the exposed group when exposed is set to 0. Take the [weighted] means of the predictions. 3. Other suggestions?
