{title:Description}
{p 4 4 2}{cmd:confnd} plots and displays effect estimates using stepwise change-in-estimate
method for assessing confounding. The first independent variable is the exposure of interest and all other independent variables are potential confounders.
{title:Options}
{p 4 8 2} {cmd:eform} reports the estimated coefficients transformed to odds ratios,
hazard ratios, relative risk i.e., exp(b) rather than b. Confidence intervals are
similarly transformed.
{p 4 8 2}{opth format(%fmt)} specifies the display format for
presenting numbers in graph and table. {cmd:format(%9.0g)} is the default. {p_end}
{p 4 8 2}{cmd: forward} specifies the forward method, the backward method is the default. {p_end}
{p 4 8 2}{opth lockterms(varlist)} specifies variables to be included in all models. {p_end}
{p 4 8 2}{cmd:vertical} plots vertical spike. The default is horizontal {p_end}
{p 4 8 2}{it:graph_options} refers to options of {help graph twoway scatter}. {p_end}
