Yes, it does. You could have tried this simple test after -sysuse auto-:

. corr price mpg
(obs=74)

             |    price      mpg
-------------+------------------
       price |   1.0000
         mpg |  -0.4686   1.0000


. pwcorr price mpg

             |    price      mpg
-------------+------------------
       price |   1.0000
         mpg |  -0.4686   1.0000
