Description

Data were from randomized trials related to treatment for drug abuse obtained by the University of Massachusetts Aids Research Unit (UMARU) IMPACT Study (UIS). The main goal of the study was to compare treatment programs of different durations in the reduction of drug abuse and in the prevention of high-risk HIV behavior (Hosmer and Lemeshow, 2000). The variables on the dataset included here are age at enrollment, drug use history at admission, race, treatment group, treatment site, and patient's status at the end of the treatment program (remained drug free or otherwise). These data are copyrighted by John Wiley & Sons Inc. and are used here to illustrate the calculation of prevalence ratios and corresponding confidence intervals.
