Dear Joseph,
Thanks very much for input. This topic also interests me (see archives) (http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2002-06/msg00075.html

I am not a statistician and I do not understand what the theta (.177746) is or what it might be used for. Could you explain? I tried to find the 'sa' option, but could not. On omitting it, the output appeared to be identical to that with the 'sa' option.
Thanks very much.
