If I am understood by your question, you may try sensitivity and specificity for this purpose.

Hello Stata users~

Happy 2012.

Here's my situation:

I have a data set in which I would like to examine the odds ratios and risk ratios of the variable (e.g., race/ethnicity) on an outcome of crime (yes/no outcome) and also examine them for different levels of the variable (white/black/Hispanic/etc.).

Also, I'm not sure logistic/logit regression is what we want to use. We are not attempting to build a model, per se, to explain the outcome, but looking at the risk/odds for being in various subgroups. Is there a cross-tab function that allows one to do this?

Thanks for any feedback.

Sincerely,

Anthony
