[R] lincom -- Linear combinations of parameters


lincom exp [, options]

options Description ------------------------------------------------------------------------- eform generic label; exp(b) or odds ratio hr hazard ratio shr subhazard ratio irr incidence-rate ratio rrr relative-risk ratio level(#) set confidence level; default is level(95) display_options control column formats

df(#) use t distribution with # degrees of freedom for computing p-values and confidence intervals ------------------------------------------------------------------------- exp is any linear combination of coefficients that is valid syntax for test; see [R] test. exp must not contain an equal sign. df(#) does not appear in the dialog box.


Statistics > Postestimation


lincom computes point estimates, standard errors, t or z statistics, p-values, and confidence intervals for linear combinations of coefficients after any estimation command, including survey estimation. Results can optionally be displayed as odds ratios, hazard ratios, incidence-rate ratios, or relative-risk ratios.


eform, or, hr, shr, irr, and rrr all report coefficient estimates as exp(b) rather than b. Standard errors and confidence intervals are similarly transformed. or is the default after logistic. The only difference in these options is how the output is labeled.

Option Label Explanation Example commands --------------------------------------------------------------- eform exp(b) Generic label cloglog or Odds Ratio Odds ratio logistic, logit hr Haz. Ratio Hazard ratio stcox, streg shr SHR Subhazard ratio stcrreg irr IRR Incidence-rate ratio poisson rrr RRR Relative-rate ratio mlogit ---------------------------------------------------------------

exp may not contain any additive constants when you use the eform, or, hr, irr, or rrr option.

level(#) specifies the confidence level, as a percentage, for confidence intervals. The default is level(95) or as set by set level.

display_options: cformat(%fmt), pformat(%fmt), and sformat(%fmt); see [R] estimation options.

The following option is available with lincom but is not shown in the dialog box:

df(#) specifies that the t distribution with # degrees of freedom be used for computing p-values and confidence intervals. The default is to use e(df_r) degrees of freedom or the standard normal distribution if e(df_r) is missing.
