Perhaps the concern is not he ado per se, but the method used to produce the
result reported, in which case might it be worth citing the original source
of the method, as well as the ado?  i.e. something to the effect "determined
according to ABC (citation) as implemented by XYZ (ado citation)?

I agree that the number of downloads in itself is not useful to address this
concern.

Subject: st: Responding to a Reviewer's Concern about an Ado

A reviewer of a proposed publication of mine is questioning the use of a
user-written program that I utilized in the analysis. I'm not sure if
the reviewer is familiar with Stata and ados.

This particular ado is the primary tool utilized in a Sage publication
regarding the subject at hand (which I will point out to the editor and
through him to the reviewer.) I'm wondering, how does one find the
number of downloads of the ado through ssc. I know there are other ways
that users can obtain ados but I suspect ssc downloads would give me a
decent number of people using the program. Any other ideas would be
appreciated. In advance. Thanks.

Mike
