dear all

Lognormal and logistic distribution for survival anlysis,there isn't
hazard ratio,is it right? why? i'm looking for command to get its
hazard ratio but i do not get it..

thank you

There is no relevant "hazard ratio" in the sense that it is
conventionally defined, because that definition refers to models that
satisfy the proportional hazards property. (Examples include
exponential, Weibull, Gompertz, and Cox's semi-parametric model.)

The lognormal and logistic models do not satisfy the proportional
hazards property. They are examples of Accelerated Failure Time models.
For these one can look at "time ratios".

The Stata manuals are clear on the distinction between different types
of continuous time hazard regression models. Look under -st-.
