Stata's definition appears to be 1 - e(sum_adev) / e(sum_rdev) in this case. That's unlike any other definition of pseudo-R^2 that's popular, but it is natural for a method based on L1-norm (or whatever notation you use). This underlines one of several problems with these measures: there are so many to choose from. See also FAQ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

People express doubt and concern about the pseudo r2 (according to the internet). Is it a second best solution or even a bad solution? * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
