See -glmcorr- (SSC) for one approach here. That calculates an rmse which appears similar, if not identical, to what you want. I like to have such measures accessible for comparing -glm- results with those of other models in which rmse appears naturally. Perhaps it is a comfort blanket, but there you go. Note that putting a constant into a variable is usually overkill as di sqrt(e(dispers)) does the calculation. Use a scalar or local macro if you want to store the value.
