Yes, I found the -dfbeta- command, which as far as I can tell works only
after -regress-. I also dug up -ldfbeta- which works after logit, but
none suited for surivial time data. However, following links in the
helpfiles you suggested I found that dfbetas can also be calculated
through -predict-, although only one variable at a time. 
I'm puzzled as to why it doesn't say so in the helpfile for -predict- or
in the chapter concering predict after streg. I'm still using stata8
documentation though, it might be updated in the more recent manuals.

Thanks for your help.

-dfbeta- should work. Type -help dfbeta- to see the
