MARGLMEAN: Stata module to compute marginal log means from regression models


  • Roger Newson

    () (National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College London)


marglmean calculates symmetric confidence intervals for log marginal means (also known as log scenario means), and asymmetric confidence intervals for the marginal means themselves. marglmean can be used after an estimation command whose predicted values are interpreted as positive conditional arithmetic means of non-negative-valued outcome variables, such as logit, logistic, probit, poisson, or glm with most non-Normal distributional families. It can estimate a marginal mean for a scenario ("Scenario 1"), in which one or more exposure variables may be assumed to be set to particular values, and any other predictor variables in the model are assumed to remain the same.
