As David said, the -somersd- package, downloadable from SSC,
can estimate stratified versions of rank parameters. The
user has a choice of parameters, which may be Kendall's
tau-a, Somers' D, or a Theil-Sen median slope. All of
these parameters are available in stratified versions,
restricted to comparisons within strata defined by a
categorical variable. And the -somersd- package has 3 .pdf
manuals, which the user can download with the package, in
which the methods and formulas are explained.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes

Roger

To me, stratified generally means controlling for a
non-continuous
covariate.

-Somersd- provides rank-based statistics for group
comparisons
allowing for strata.
