as far as I can see from the replies you have got, nothing very helpful
turns up. I might have some useful information, it does not relate to STATA,
though, but I have used this specialised seasonality program several times.

The original reference is Jones RH, Ford PM, Hamman RF: Seasonality
comparisons among groups using incidence data. Biometrics 1988; 44:

The latest publication I have been involved in concerning this method is
Hauschild K-M, Mouridsen SE, Nielsen S: Season of birth in Danish children
with language disorder born in the 1958-1976 period. Neuropsychobiology
2005; 51: 93-99.

The original author RH Jones is very helpful with giving access to the
special software his group has developed. It works well if the average
monthly incidence is three or above.
