I was just writing to suggest -somersd- when Roger's post appeared in my mailbox. I'll just add that the command's -cluster()- option will account for the presence of individuals in both curves.

Newson wrote: One possibility here is to use the -somersd- package, downloadable from SSC, to compute a confidence interval and a P-value for the Gehan–Breslow–Wilcoxon Somers' D of survival time with respect to membership of Group 1 instead of Group 2. This practice is demonstrated in Subsection 5.2 of Newson (2006), which you can download free from the Stata Journal website at http://www.stata-journal.com/article.html?article=snp15_6 I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further queries. Best wishes Roger References Newson R. Confidence intervals for rank statistics: Somers' D and extensions. The Stata Journal 2006; 6(3): 309-334.
