[R] confidence intervals on multiple comparisons

prop.test is for testing proportions two at a time.  If you want to test
for differences between 4 proportions simultaneously (rather than two at a
time), try a logistic regression model (from which you can get confidence
intervals for each of your groups).

I am using prop.test to compare 4 proportions to find out whether they
are equal.  According to the help function you can not have confidence
intervals if you compare more than 2 proportions.

I need to find an effect size or confidence interval for these proportions.

Any suggestions?
