Richard Williams gave a good answer. A detail remains over output shown
a stop or period (.). 

Just as with data, a numeric result shown as . is Stata's way of saying 
missing, or don't know.

Just from missing, however, it is difficult to reverse engineer what 
lies behind it. There are two main possibilities. 

1. Stata did the calculation, but can't show a number because the 
result is indeterminate. 

. di 7/0 

is a simple example. 7/0 is indeterminate. 

2. Stata doesn't know what you are referring to. 

. summarize foobar 
. di r(SUM) 

You ask for a display of r(SUM). But so such result is known to Stata. 
It shrugs its shoulders and puts missing. (You might have meant r(sum). 
Such typos are quite a common reason for a display of missing.)

I have fitted a partial proportional odds model in Stata 9.2 using 
-gologit2-. In their book, Regression Models for Categorical Dependent 
Data using Stata, Long and Freese suggest that McKelvey & Zavoina's R2 
most closely approximates the R2 from linear regression models (which I 
assume makes this the most suitable R2 to use). Following the advice on 
Richard William's website to use the v1 option, I have been able to use 
-fitstat-  with -gologit2-, however, it does not produce the M&Z R2.
Please could someone tell me if this is because it does not make sense 
with a partial proportional odds model, in which case, is there a more 
appropriate measure of fit that I can use? Or do I need to specifically 
ask for M&Z R2 via an option?

There was a similar question posed last year, but the solution suggested

to that post (see below) gives me an estimate of "." I'm not sure what 
that means.

sysuse auto
logit foreign price
estadd scalar r2_mz = r(r2_mz)

and then tabulate using:

estout ., eform cells(n se(par)) stats(r2_mz) style(fixed)


esttab ., eform se scalars(r2_mz)
