I've just got to grips with the basics of Stata (for my dissertation). My tutor asked me to use the command 'mcc' to compare binary variables, which is fine - but I'm not sure how to interpret the results.
All I'm really after is a p value!
It offers a whole host of results;
Exact McNemar significance probability=0.1480
Proportion with factor
Controls .3085_______________95% Conf Interval
difference .0213______________-.0069 _______ .0495
rel difference .0308__________-.0069_________.0684
odds ratio 1.522 ______________.8741_________2.697________(exact)
Basically I have no idea what any of these numbers are telling me. Is any one of them the p value?! Sorry for such a basic question from someone with a very poor grasp of stats!
Thank you! Another quick question;
With the logistic regression analysis, is the P>|z| value the p value?!
Yes - the p-value is the probability of observing a result of at least this magnitude under the null hypothesis. The null hypothesis is that z is zero, and in a two-tailed test you're worried about the absolute value of z (|z|) rather than its direction.
How do you perform McNemar's test in stata? Thanks!!
