```This email apparently didn't make it to the list and I didn't get a bounce-back. It ends a thread begun February 26.

Here's a version that works with an arbitrary number of predictors.

*************CODE BEGINS*************
version 10

sysuse auto, clear
stset length

local xvars  turn price

jackknife _b, keep: stcox `xvars', nohr

stcox `xvars', nohr

foreach z of varlist `xvars'{
gen dfb_`z' = ///
(1/_se[`z'])* (_b_`z'-_b[`z'])/(e(N_sub)-1)
}

sum dfb*
***********CODE ENDS*******************

Use -jackknife- to calculate dfbeta from first principles:

b_i = coefficient, omitting observation i from analysis:

Jackknife Pseudo-value : v_i = n*b - (n-1)*b_i

dfbeta_i = (b - b_i)/se(b)

= (v_i - b)/(se(b)*(n-1))

This is a direct calculation. The values issued by
later versions of Stata after -stcox- are approximations.

*************CODE BEGINS*************
sysuse auto, clear

version 10

jackknife _b[turn] , keep: stcox turn
stcox turn
gen  dfbjack1 =  ///
(1/(_se[turn])*(_jk_1 - _b[turn])/(e(N)-1))

version 12.1

stcox turn
predict  dfbcox* ,dfbeta
corr dfb*

I need to calculate dfbeta statistics for Cox proportional Hazard
Models. Stata 10 does not allow directly to calculate them (Stata 11
does, conversely).
Does anyone know if there is a way to do the same (indirectly) in Stata 10?

Thanks for any help!
