Does anybody know how to get the c-index (or simply the percentage of
concordant/tied/discordant pairs) after an ordered logit model? I know
that Sas gives this statistic in every logit regression output, but I
can't get it when I use Stata. Is there a specific instruction?
Somers' D is linked to the C-index by the formula


and can be computed, with confidence limits, by my -somersd- package (downloadable from SSC together with .pdf manuals). More can be found on Somers' D, Kendall's tau-a and median differences in my Stata Journal article (Newson, 2002), which can be downloaded as a pre-publication draft from my website at
either using a browser or using the Stata -net- command.

I hope this helps.
