Hello All

Thanks to Kit Baum, a new version of the -somersd- package can now be
downloaded from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this.

The -somersd- package will be described as below on my website, when my
website can next be updated. The new version contains the same programs
as before, but the manuals and the online help have been improved. There
are now .hlp files for all Mata programs used by -somersd- which might
possibly be useful elsewhere, and these can be accessed by typing

whelp somersd_mata

The new documentation also contains an up-to-date version of my email
address and affiliation, which has changed from King's College London to
Imperial College London (see my signature below). My old King's College
email will work until May, and my old King's College website is still
accessible, but cannot be updated. I will let the list (and StataCorp)
know the new location when my website is moved to Imperial College.

Best wishes

Roger

TITLE
      somersd: Kendall's tau-a, Somers' D and median differences

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      The somersd package contains the programs somersd and cendif,
which
      calculate confidence intervals for the parameters behind rank or
      "nonparametric" statistics. The program somersd calculates
confidence
      intervals for Kendall's tau-a or Somers' D, and stores the
estimates and
      their covariance matrix as estimation results. It can be used on
      left-censored, right-censored, clustered and/or stratified data.
      The program cendif calculates confidence intervals for
Hodges-Lehmann
      median differences (or other percentile differences) between two
groups.
      Kendall's tau-a is a difference between probabilities of
concordance and
      discordance, and measures rank order correlation. Somers' D is a
parameter
      equal to zero under the null hypothesis tested by the
Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney
      or Breslow-Gehan ranksum test, and can be used to calculate
confidence
      intervals for Harrell's c index, for areas under receiver
operating
      characteristic (ROC) curves, for differences between Harrell's c
indices
      or ROC areas, or for Gini coefficients. The Hodges-Lehmann median
difference
      can be defined in terms of Somers' D, and is also zero under the
null
      hypothesis tested by the ranksum test. Full documentation of the
two programs
      (including methods and formulas) can be found in the ancillary
files
      somersd.pdf and cendif.pdf, which can be viewed using the Adobe
Acrobat
      Reader.
