{title:Description}
{pstd} {cmd:r2o} calculates the ordinal explained variation statistic (i.e., Rē) described by Lacy (2006), which
is used to summarize the fit of a regression model for an ordinal response. It rests on an ordinal variation
measure that entails no assumptions about intercategory distances or distributional form. This measure is valid regardless
of the method used to estimate the model, and was shown to outperform various pseudo-Rē measures in estimating the value of
the true Rē for a regression model for an underlying continuous response, even though its sense does not require such.
{cmd:r2o} is to be used after a relevant categorical response model has been run, while the e() list is still intact. By default, the program recognizes
the following as relevant response models: {helpb ologit}, {helpb oprobit}, {helpb mlogit}, and {helpb gologit2}. However, {cmd:r2o}
should work after any estimation command for which {helpb predict} {it: p1,..., pk} will calculate predicted probabilities, and
which follows official Stata's conventions for naming items in the e() list. {p_end}
