Does this help?

I'm interested in working with (read: using as scalars) the confidence intervals created by a Poisson regression.

If I were doing a linear regression, I'd just do what they say here, which is:

reg outcome treatment, robust
local l95=_b[treatment] -
local u95=_b[treatment] + invttail(e(df_r),0.025)*_se[treatment]

But a Poisson regression like the following:
poisson outcome treatment, robust

doesn't have the residual degrees of freedom (e(df_r)), and even if it did, I
don't think that's how Stata is creating the confidence intervals. There must be some other simple (complicated?) formula I can use to recreate
CI's, given the stored values after a Poisson regression. Any
