Dear 'listers,

I am working on Poisson models, and using -estat gof- I obtain:

         Deviance goodness-of-fit =  301.3502
         Prob > chi2(269)         =    0.0852

         Pearson goodness-of-fit  =  1135.374
         Prob > chi2(269)         =    0.0000

My data do not appear to be horribly over-dispersed (alpha from
-nbreg- is 3.39e-07), (variance = 3.6, mean 1.8).
I suspect the discrepancy could be due to the very large df (it's a
collapsed Cox model), but the Stata manual for -poisson
postestimation- doesn't provide any clarity on when one gof might be
more apppropiate. Alternatively, the model could be very poorly
specified, but only options I know of are SSC's -fitstat-.

Any suggestions?
