Min. :0.0 Min. : 0.00
1st Qu.:0.0 1st Qu.: 0.00
Median :0.5 Median : 2.00
Mean :0.5 Mean : 14.77
3rd Qu.:1.0 3rd Qu.: 9.50
Max. :1.0 Max. :156.00 I am looking for a way to do the odds ratio. I tried EpiR and exec and both do not work. I also tried fisher's test it shows me the p-value only and does not even show the odds ratio.

• Your question is very difficult to read. Plesse format it properly. Also try exp(coef(mymodel)) Jul 27 '20 at 4:38
• It does not work >exp(coef(odds1)) Error in exp(coef(odds1)) : non-numeric argument to mathematical function In addition: Warning message: Unknown or uninitialised column: coefficients. Jul 27 '20 at 4:47
• But you didnt fix the formatting so it is almost impossible to help you. Also try exp(0.4539) Jul 27 '20 at 4:51
• Sorry. a bit new. Hopefully the picture clarifies it. If I do that it gives me one number, is this the odds ratio? It does not have a title so I am not sure: exp(0.4539)  1.574441---- Also you do it this way exp(estimate #) so you will be using the estimate#? Jul 27 '20 at 4:58
• Please don't post a pictiure of your code and output - it is then impossible to copy parts from it !! Just copy the text and put  above and below it. Or if it's just a few lines, put 4 spaces in front of each line. The system will format it properly. The odds ratio for a categorical variable is just the exponentiated coefficient.

The odds ratio for LR2 is simply the exponentiated value of the estimate for it:
> exp(0.4539)
