Proportionate Mortality Ratios and their 95% CI

Hello everyone. I'm new to this site and a rookie in SAS. I have this project requiring me to calculate the proportionate mortality ratios for the causes of death along with their 95% CI. How would I go about doing that in SAS?

 

Thanks

It's easier to provide helpful examples if you can supply some sample data.  But in general, you might look at survival analysis (PROC LIFETEST).  See an article here.  Example from doc here.

Thanks for the reply. So what I have is about 1500 observations with individuals diganosed with developmental disorders in a csv file. With the underlying causes of death that I'm going to categorize them into different categories according to their ICD10 code. My job is to then calculate the PMR for those causes of death and their 95% confidence interval. 

 

Does this help?

Okay, maybe not LIFETEST since you didn't mention a time series or survival time component.  Maybe proportional odds model using PROC LOGISTIC or similar?  Check this paper to see if it fits your need.

 

A real statistician (that is: not me) might chime in with a more specific suggestion.

Thanks! I forgot to mention that the dataset consist of data from 1999-2014 if that makes a difference.
