Dear Stata-listers,

As part of an exploratory analysis, I am running a series of logistic models
to investigate the best predictor of a binary variable "lbw" using three
time point measurements (X3,X6 and X12 at ages 3,6 and 12 months,
respectively) given that all explanatory variables are highly significant.

xi: logit lbw i.X3 (model 1)
xi: logit lbw i.X6 (model 2)
xi: logit lbw i.X12 (model 3)

I wish to use the command "mlfit" to obtain the AIC and SC criteria (for
example as seen below from model 1)

. mlfit
 Criteria for assessing logistic model fit
 Akaike's Information Criterion (AIC) and Schwarz's Criterion (SC)

 AIC           SC           | -2 Log Likelihood    Num.Parameters
 9271.8362     9288.2391    |  9267.8362              2

The problem is "mlfit" has no options to store the stats above and I wish to
display all of those in a matrix as snap-shot of the "goodness of fit" of
each model.

Many thanks for your help in advance.
