Roger, thank you for the reference.  I downloaded and checked out
-parmest-, but it doesn't give standardized regression coefficients as
an explicit option; however, the macro option would allow for
programming.  Maybe my question is more basic, ie. do standardized
regression coefficients exist for proportional hazards models?  If so,
what formula would be used to estimate them?  I haven't found one yet.
There is a formula on p 75 of Long and Freese, Regression models for
categorical dependent variables using Stata, that uses quadratic forms
for dependent variables that may be conceptualized as latent variables,
eg. the logistic model, which leaves me with the question whether the
log-hazard of a Cox model may be considered as a latent variable?  And
if so, two further questions 1) what residual to use (eg. Schoenfeld,
Martingale)? and 2) what is the variance of the residual (eg. probit
variance is fixed at 1)?  Bill H.

The -parmest- package (downloadable from SSC) might be a tool for the
It creates a dataset with 1 obs per parameter of an estimated model 
(created by any estimation command including -stcox-) and data on 
estimates, confidence limits, standard errors, z-scores, p-values and
parameter attributes. In Stata, type
