Same way. Since the variance of logistic distribution is pi^2/3, your
ICC is [variance of the random intercept]/([variance of the random
intercept]+pi^2/3). You can obtain this by -display- or -nlcom-: the
latter will give you a confidence interval, although you'd probably
want to put rather little trust in it, as the sampling distributions
of ICC are highly skewed.
