This is a repost of a question sent earlier. There is advise on that

One reason why you got no answer is that it is not clear whether there
is an implementation in Stata. Purely statistical questions are welcome
on this list, but people on this list are for obvious reasons more
familiar with statistical techniques available in Stata. 

Also these kinds of "corrections" are not very popular with some of the
people on this list, see for instance:

As for references I know none that you could not find using google.
