I am using Stata 10.1.
At first I was simply using "mfx compute," as I had done with a probit
model.  I am now using "mfx compute, predict outcome(#))" where # represents
an outcome of my dependent variable.  The latter method provides results.

Again, -margeff- or -mfx2- can simplify your life, by automating the process so you get every outcome with a single command. -margeff- is also faster than -mfx- and offers additional powerful options.

Is there a function for ologit similar to what lstat does for probit
(specifically to get a % for correctly predicted)?  I would like to get some
idea of my model's reliability.

Not to my knowledge. I've never been that fond of -lstat- anyway. Especially if the outcome is relatively rare, or common, you can wind up having all the cases be predicted as a 1 or else as a 0.

You might consider the -leastlikely- command, which is part of Long and Freese's -spost9- package. It will help to identify those cases where the model seems to be having the most trouble.
