The new package -nlcorr- by myself and Kristian Karlson has been
available on SSC for quite a while but was never advertised on
Statalist. So here is the advertisment:

-nlcorr- estimates the (partial) correlation between the predictor
variable(s) of a nonlinear probability model and the latent
variable, y*, assumed to underlie an discrete outcome. This correlation
metric, developed by Breen, Karslon, and Holm (2011), can be used to
draw cross-group comparisons based on non-linear probability models in a
range situations met in applied research.  The program also calculates
the standard error of the Fisher transformed  correlations, obtained by
the delta method.

For more details check out the help-file, Kristian Karlson's
presentation on this year's German Stata Users Group meeting
(, or the article 
Breen/Karlson/Holm (2011).
