You can designate pairs as strata in -stcox- (Kalbfleisch & Prentice, 2002, p. 329).
But that will not provide information about the survival curve. 
An alternative (Ho et al. (2007)) is to ignore the pairing.

Dear all,
I am comparing a group of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)patients enrolled in a disease management program and a control group. I calculated pscore and did psmatch2 using c:\ado\plus\p\psmatch2.ado *! version 4.0.5 18apr2012 E. Leuven, B. Sianesi. I used psmatch2 to adjust for their baseline differences and now I would like to do a cox regression on the matched program patients and controls to see if there is a difference in time to death between the two groups.

I would like to know how to run stcox after psmatch2 , thereby identifying the matching sequence for the cox regression. I tried looking for answers for this but found only one unanswered relevant question which could be found at http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2009-11/msg00709.html

Kindly help.

Thank you,

Best regards,
Pradeep
