What about the compare command?

Does any one know that in the logistic regression in STATA, how can I generate
the concordant/tie/non-concordant percentage as SAS did? I need this statistics
because my referee asked for it.


I suspect that -compare- doesn't do what she needs.  

Using the example at 
for SAS's PROC LOGISTIC output, the do-file below might get closer.  


1. I let -ktau- compute the Percent Ties for me.

2. -somersd- is written by Roger Newson; you'll need to install it from SSC.

3. -somersd- can also compute tau-a and c.
