I need to validate my model. I heard that I need to do either by a cross-validation or a bootstrap. I have three questions.

1. What is the best statistics to report if I want to show that my model is validated using bootstrap? I read a paper that reported C statistics, although I have to study what that is. Do you recommend me reporting C statistics?

2. Does STATA have a code that generates a shrinkage factor? 

3. I wrote below my STATA code that performs bootstrap and get a C statistics. But I got an error and I don't know why. Please advise.

use bootstrap.dta, clear
estat concordance
matrix b = e(b)
capture program drop mysim
program define mysim, rclass
    use bootstrap.dta, clear
    lroc BPA, nograph beta(b)
    return scalar c=r(c)
simulate c=r(c), reps(100): mysim

Thank you in advance. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
