The analogue to the regression R rsquared in a GLM is the deviance. I don't know what C is but hopefully someone else does and will reply.

Also, John Fox's text, "Applied Regression Analysis, Linear Models and Related Methods" and Modern Applied Statistics with S, by Bill Venables and Brian Ripley, both do a very nice job of covering GLM's so I would look at one of those tests for the technical details. Agresti is the supposed bible but I think those are quite sufficient.

Besides the standardize summary statistics generated from R, I am also interested in some more informations concerning the model fitting / prediction etc; Particularly I am interested in "pseudo R squar" and "C statistic". I searched the R- help and could only get very limited information. (Post by Frank Harrell mentioning about "the somers2 or rcorr.cens functions in the Hmisc library." ) However, I tried but still could not get through it. Also I found someone mentioned about do it manually.
