relrisk: Regression Adjusted Relative Risks

Description

This function calculates the relative risks RR adjusted for covariates (acting on a previous log-binomial regression fit) and confidence intervals (by default 95 percent) for the estimated RR. The confidence interval is calculated from the log(RR) and backtransformed.

Usage

relrisk(object, alpha = 0.05, dispersion = FALSE)

Arguments

object

object of class 'lbreg'.

alpha

1 - desired confidence level.

dispersion

logical. TRUE if standard errors should be adjusted for dispersion estimate based on Pearson residuals.

Value

value

table with estimated relative risks, lower and upper bounds of condifidence intervals.
