Thanks for your help Nick,
As 'collin' is not part of 'official Stata', to what degree can I be
confident of its statistical validity?
Roger
You can ask the same question about any user written routine! And even official Stata programs can have bugs.

When possible, I think it is a good idea to try to cross-validate some results using different programs. As for -collin-, I've been able to replicate its results using SPSS and also printed results, so as far as I can tell it is fine.
