If the output is changing each time you run the command, it would be
good to actually see the -istdize- command that you are using and the
output that it's generating each time.

I was trying to use the istdize command and realized that some of the 
outputs (eg. Number of observed events) are incorrect and change each 
time I run the command (this problem was posted before but could not 
find an answer). Also the number  of cases might be different from the 
same strata when looking at the stratified outputs as compared to the 
summary outputs. After exploring the ado file, I found that there might 
be a couple of lines missing in the file. The basic problem is when 
there is more than one group, the total number of cases is no added and 
the command is using a random line with the cases from that particular 
observation. Since I am not an expert on Stata, I added this basic lines

to the ado file and the outputs look correct but it would be nice if 
somebody else could look into this as well since there are many papers 
citing the use of this command that might have some errors.
