Displaying inferences from complex models

David Williams writes:

I am completing my doctoral dissertation dealing with modeling adverse birth outcomes. The models are complex with 9 risk factors, 5 area level variables and 4 individual level variables.

I used hierarchical logistic regression (SAS glimmix) to analyze the data.

I am now faced with reporting the results. Can you please recommend any references and/or examples that would suggest what results to report in what format? I have found no references and scant examples of reporting such results in tables.

My reply: I think graphs are the way to go. I don’t have any immediate ideas beyond what’s in the book with Jennifer. I think this is an important area of research.
