Important detail:All the covariates are binary variables. Multicollinearity is never a problem, see e.g.: <http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2010-07/msg00675.html>, so there is nothing to diagnose. If you want to inspect the association between binary covariates I would look at a table of odds ratios. -- Maarten -------------------------- Maarten L.
