Risk Ratio (or Prevalence Ratio) in Proc Glimmix

Is it possible to obtain  risk ratio in proc glimmix. And  if yes, how do I specify the base. E.g base 'male' in variable 'gender'.

Below is a template of my model:

proc glimmix data = mydata method=laplace;

class  wave gender race city education;                                     

weight wgt;

model response = gender age  race education city

/ dist=poisson link=log;

random intercept / subject = wave type=vc;

run;

Any suggestion is very much appreciated,

See the SAS Note on this topic.  You can probably use the log-linked binomial approach by specifying the DIST=BINOMIAL LINK=LOG options in your MODEL statement.  But beware of the possible fitting problems that can result.
