Sorry again! I even had the wrong email header! The package is -punafcc-, not -punaf- (which has not changed).

Thanks as always to Kit Baum, a new version of the -punafcc- package is
now available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to
do this, or -adoupdate- if you already have an old version of -punafcc-.

The -punafcc- package is described as below on my website. The new
version fixes a bug, which caused - punafcc- to give the wrong results
when called after -stcox- in a survival dataset with censored lifetimes.
This is now fixed.

I would like to thank Brian Claggett of Harvard University for alerting
me to this bug, and Isabel Canette of Stata Technical Support for her
helpful advice about how best to correct this bug. And I would like to
apologise for any inconvenience caused. (I have added a new test
sequence to my certification script for -punafcc- to check that it stays
fixed.)

Best wishes

Roger

TITLE
       punafcc: Population attributable fractions for case-control and
survival studies

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
       punafcc calculates confidence intervals for population attributable
       and unattributable fractions in case-control or survival studies.
       punafcc can be used after an estimation command whose parameters are
       interpreted as log rate ratios, such as logit or logistic for
       case-control data, or stcox for survival data.  It estimates the log
       of the mean rate ratio, in cases or deaths, between 2 scenarios, a
       baseline scenario ("Scenario 0") and a fantasy scenario ("Scenario
       1"), in which one or more exposure variables are assumed to be set
       to particular values (typically zero), and any other predictor
       variables in the model are assumed to remain the same.  This ratio
       is known as the population unattributable fraction (PUF), and is
       subtracted from 1 to derive the population attributable fraction
       (PAF), defined as the proportion of the cases or deaths attributable
       to living in Scenario 0 instead of Scenario 1.
