estat gof reports the Pearson goodness-of-fit test or the Hosmer-Lemeshow goodness-of-fit test.

estat gof requires that the current estimation results be from logistic, logit, or probit. For estat gof after poisson, see [R] poisson postestimation. For estat gof after sem, see [SEM] estat gof.

group(#) specifies the number of quantiles to be used to group the data for the Hosmer-Lemeshow goodness-of-fit test. group(10) is typically specified. If this option is not given, the Pearson goodness-of-fit test is computed using the covariate patterns in the data as groups.

all requests that the statistic be computed for all observations in the data, ignoring any if or in restrictions specified by the estimation command.

outsample adjusts the degrees of freedom for the Pearson and Hosmer-Lemeshow goodness-of-fit tests for samples outside the estimation sample. See Samples other than the estimation sample in [R] estat gof.

table displays a table of the groups used for the Hosmer-Lemeshow or Pearson goodness-of-fit test with predicted probabilities, observed and expected counts for both outcomes, and totals for each group.
