The logit and logistic commands are alternatives for the glm command

there an alternative Stata command that will produce a log binomial
regression (for calculating relative risks or risk ratios) instead of
having to use the glm command with binomial family and log link?


The help file for -glm- has a hyperlink that points to a list of logistic-type
estimation (regression) commands in Stata.  You can call it directly from the
command prompt by typing: help logistic estimation commands .

The list contains one other command that will give risk ratios: -binreg , rr-
I'm not sure what the difference is between -glm , family(binomial)- and 
-binreg , rr-.  Maybe one calls the other.

I'm also not sure what you're seeking in an alternative to 
-glm , family(binomial) link(log)-.  Is there some postestimation command that 
you're looking to do that -glm- doesn't support?

There is one other command that I'm aware of in Stata that computes risk 
ratios, but it's not an estimation command:  -cs- and -csi-.  You can find out
more by typing

help cs


help epitab

at the command prompt in Stata.
