Hmm, my searches online have provided me with some insightful work by Kvalseth (1985). Apparently, he has an alternative R-squared which should work across models (including no constant or 0 constant models). It's specified by 1 - [(Y-XBhat) ' (Y-XBhat) / Y'Y - Ymean squared] I could put it in myself, or is there already a user-written command for this uniform R-squared?
