Hi all,

Does anybody know how to generate a Pseudo R-Square using the negative binomial model with the cluster option in Stata?
You might see if -fitstat-, which is part of the -spostado- package (do -findit spostado-) will work. Even if it doesn't the whole package of routines is great to have. -fitstat- also gives several of the other pseudo R^2 measures; I'm not totally sure why McFadden's R^2 is the one that came to be "blessed" by Stata.

There is some discussion of R^2 and Pseudo R^2 (and why they aren't always provided) at
