Re: st: Problem recreating SE and CI using e(V) from logistic, stcox etc

The standard error reported by -logistic- for the OR is the delta
method estimate.  The standard error given in V is for b = log(OR)

se(exp(b)) ~ exp(b) x se(b)  = .06169749

First using stcox, and since replicated in logistic. What is odd is that the CIs (calculated from my SE) agree to many decimal places with each other. Simple example using auto, below:
