This paper presents a command, glst, for trend estimation across different exposure levels for either single or multiple summarized case–control, incidence-rate, and cumulative incidence data.This approach is based on constructing an approximate covariance estimate for the log relative risks and estimating a corrected linear trend using generalized least squares. The setup and process for obtaining GLS estimates is the same as in FGLS, but replace Ω ^ with the known innovations covariance matrix Ω. .
