You can use our standardized code available at for this table. Specifically you would need the code in the file if you are using Stata: er/Chap08_CM

The same file is also available in SPSS: r/Chap08_CM
As well as R: p08_CM/CM_PMR.R

Please read the readme file on the main site before running any of this code.

Thank you.
