Subject:   Relative risks and risk differences in SAS?
Content-Type:   text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"


I just got a request for relative risks- here is is:

Do you know if your statistics package can estimate relative risks and

risk differences based on odds ratios and known or estimated

population fraction of cases (prevalence)? I was reading through a

paper by Gary King (

and was wondering if the relative risk or risk reduction of having a

particular SNP would be easier to understand than just p-values or

odds ratios.

I'm not familiar with this- does anyone know how this is done in SAS?
