In version 2.0 a new /OA (Outbreak analysis) parameter will be added to 
analysis.

The question is what should be shown as default (other aspects will come 
as further options):
e.g.:
. tab ill vanilla milk coffee /oa
Would make a table for ill by all other variables, and then show what:

A:
N    total number of observations
for exposed and unexposed:
  Ill  number of persons with outcome
  Attack Rate + CI (percent with outcome)
Odds Ratios + CI

B:
N    total number of observations
for exposed and unexposed:
  Ill  number of persons with outcome
  Attack Rate (percent with outcome)
RR + CI

Please discuss default and desired options
