In this article we estimate confidence regions of the common measures of (baseline, treatment effect) in observational studies, where the measure of a baseline is baseline risk or baseline odds while the measure of a treatment effect is odds ratio, risk difference, risk ratio or attributable fraction, and where confounding is controlled in estimation of both the baseline and treatment effect. We use only one logistic model to generate approximate distributions of the maximum-likelihood estimates of these measures and thus obtain the maximum-likelihood-based confidence regions for these measures. The method is presented via a real medical example.
