Statistics with STATA
Statistics with Stata is intended for students and practicing researchers, to bridge the gap between statistical textbooks and Stata’s own documentation.
Statistics with Stata is intended for students and practicing researchers, to bridge the gap between statistical textbooks and Stata’s own documentation. In this intermediate role, it does not provide the detailed expositions of a proper textbook, nor does it come close to describing all of Stata’s features. Instead, it demonstrates how to use Stata to accomplish a wide variety of statistical tasks.
Chapter topics follow conceptual themes rather than focusing on particular Stata commands, which gives Statistics with Stata a different structure from the Stata reference manuals. The chapter on Data Management, for example, covers many different procedures for creating, importing, combining or restructuring data files. Chapters on Graphs, Summary Statistics and Tables, and on ANOVA and Other Comparison Methods have similarly broad
themes that encompass a number of separate techniques.
A new chapter that introduces Survey Data, placed early in the book, provides background for more technical survey examples presented where appropriate in later chapters.
