{title:Description}
{pstd}
{cmd:usos} implements the unweighted sum of squares (USOS) test for global goodness of fit (GOF) following the estimation of a logistic/logit
model. This method has been attributed to Copas (1989) and le Cessie and van Houwelingen (1995). Hosmer et al. (1997) report that this
method (in addition to the Pearson chi-square method which is available in official Stata ({help logistic estat gof}) offers superior power
based on simulations. As such, they recommend the use of these two GOF approaches for confirmation of model fit or lack-of-fit.
{pstd}
{cmd:usos} is based on Frank Harrell's residuals.lrm {rms} package in R ({browse "https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/rms/rms.pdf"}).
