    Dear , I am have tried univariate regression analysis in my project using stata and it gave me the abaove results.The results doesnt make sense to me a ,although the P =0.006, the confidence interval does pass through 1???

    Did I do anything wrong?
    how to interpret and defend th results this way.
    This happen also when I put this variable in multivariate analysis?


    thanks in advance

    Can you take a screen shot of your output and upload it. That would drastically help us with an interpretation.


    Thank you.

    Re: confidence interval and p value


    I am not following you, the confidence interval is from

    .000000161 to .0756841 with an estimate of .0001105 and SE of .0003682.

    Can you give a little information on why this result does not make sense? The confidence interval does not pass through log (1) [i.e. 0].
