BEGIN DATA 1 1 1 11 1 1 2 72 2 1 1 17 2 1 2 73 1 2 1 15 1 2 2 61 2 2 1 47 2 2 2 528 END DATA. WEIGHT BY freq . VALUE LABELS smoker 1 'Yes' 2 'No' /coffee 1' Yes' 2 'No' /problem 1'Yes' 2 'No'. * Assuming problem is the outcome, coffee is the IV and tobacco is the adjusting factor *. PJV> 2 - Mantel-Haenzel statistics, which is available through the PJV> crosstabs command. If the Mantel-Haenzel statistic is not significant PJV> then you don't need to adjust by race and can calculate a simple Odds PJV> ratio. CROSSTABS /TABLES=problem BY coffee BY smoker /FORMAT= AVALUE TABLES /STATISTIC=CHISQ RISK CMH(1) /CELLS= COUNT. * Last part of the output will give you Mantel-Haenszel OR, the adjusted estimator of the effect of coffee comsumption, adjusted by smoker status. PJV> 1 - Try with the logistic regression method, I think that this command PJV> can help you. RECODE problem (2=0) . EXECUTE . VALUE LABELS problem 1'Yes' 0 'No'. LOGISTIC REGRESSION problem /METHOD = ENTER smoker coffee /CONTRAST (smoker)=Indicator /CONTRAST (coffee)=Indicator /PRINT = CI(95) /CRITERIA = PIN(.05) POUT(.10) ITERATE(20) CUT(.5) . -- Regards, Marta mailto:biostatistics@terra.es ```
