```Hi Kirsten,
Perhaps this will help:

set.seed(3)
kmdf<-data.frame(group=rep(1:4,each=20),
prop=c(runif(20,0.25,1),runif(20,0.2,0.92),
runif(20,0.15,0.84),runif(20,0.1,0.77)))
summary(km.glm)
pval<-0.00845
# assume you have five comparisons in this family
}
abline(h=0.05,col="lightgray")
library(plotrix)
