FW: st: Plotting several linear associations in one graph for comparison |

Hello all, Regarding my previous question: plotting multiple linear regressions stratified by a particular variable on the same graph. I received some example syntax from Maarten but I was unable to understand the details. Does anybody else have any ideas on how twoway line plot can be exploited for my prupose? My original Q: - I've run some very basic and simple linear regression models to analyse associations between standardized birth weight and blood pressure, adjusting for confounders like birth year, current age, BMI, height etc. > > - The associations between birth weight and blood pressure are stratified by ethnicity (12 ethnic goups - thus 12 separate linear regression models). I see that the association between birth weight and blood pressure does differ in the various ethnic goups. > > - I would now like to plot the above associations in a single graph using different colours for the various ethnic groups for comparison. Thanks! Amal. ________________________________________ From: Amal Khanolkar Sent: 13 July 2012 15:22 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: RE: st: Plotting several linear associations in one graph for comparison Hi Maarten, Thanks for your example. Just wondering what the 'replace' commands are doing specifically? I guess it's not important for me. Ideally, I ran my regressions stratifying by race, (if race==1 and so on) - should I also predict yhat separately for each racial group as well? Thanks, /Amal. ________________________________________ From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] on behalf of Maarten Buis [maartenlbuis@gmail.com] Sent: 13 July 2012 15:10 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: Re: st: Plotting several linear associations in one graph for comparison On Fri, Jul 13, 2012 at 2:42 PM, Amal Khanolkar wrote: > - I've run some very basic and simple linear regression models to analyse associations between standardized birth weight and blood pressure, adjusting for confounders like birth year, current age, BMI, height etc. > > - The associations between birth weight and blood pressure are stratified by ethnicity (12 ethnic goups - thus 12 separate linear regression models).
