I don't know why Harrell's c is not available afert parametric survival model. However, it is definitely available after the -somersd- command, downloadable from SSC. If in Stata you type

somersd lifetime hazard, censtat(cstat) transf(c) tdist

and -lifetime- is a lifetime variable, -hazard- is a predictor of hazard rate, and -cstat- is a censorship status variable (positive for right-censored lifetimes, negative for left-censored lifetimes and zero for uncensored lifetimes), then you will get an estimate for Harrell's c, which is stored in e(b).

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further queries.

Best wishes

Subject: st: stcrreg and Harrell's c index

Harrell's c index is not available as a postestimation statistic after
stcrreg (or any parametric survival model). Is there a theoretical reason
for this? If not, how can I compute it after stcrreg?
