plot and display change-in-effect estimates after estimation

confnd[,eformforwardlockterms(varlist)format(%fmt)verticalgraph_options]

Description

confndplots 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.

Options

eformreports the estimated coefficients transformed to odds ratios, hazard ratios, relative risk i.e., exp(b) rather than b. Confidence intervals are similarly transformed.

format(%fmt)specifies the display format for presenting numbers in graph and table.format(%9.0g)is the default.forwardspecifies the forward method, the backward method is the default.lockterms(varlist)specifies variables to be included in all models.verticalplots vertical spike. The default is horizontalgraph_optionsrefers to options of graph twoway scatter.
