-You are very welcome, Paul, but I think that using the post-estimation facilities of -stpm2-, as outlined by Paul Lambert, might be better, as well as easier. -stpm2- has the advantage of being parametric, but doesn't require that you pick (and defend!) a parametric distribution.
In any case, with -streg- you'll need -nlcom- to produce estimates and CIs on a suitable scale and then transform back to the probability scale. With -stpm2- it would be simpler to bootstrap, given the ease of producing S(t)/S(t_0).

I had been hoping to avoid doing all the algebra (or at least get some pre-calculated values to check my algebra against). It6 seems I'm out of luck.

To get it for arbitrary values of the inputs, you have to do it yourself. S(t| t_0) = S(t)/S(t_0), and the formulas for S(.) are on page 358 of the Stata Manual (V 11). You can get the linear predictor for any values of the X's with -margins- or -adjust- ( Stata<11). Add the appropriate auxiliary parameters (returned results e(theta), e(aux_p), e(gamma), e(sigma), e(kappa)); your t and t_0; then plug everything into the formulas. Steve Steven J.
