Using simple language and illustrative examples, this book comprehensively covers data management tasks that bridge the gap between raw data and statistical analysis. Rather than focus on clusters of commands, the author takes a modular approach that enables readers to quickly identify and implement the necessary task without having to access background information first. Each section in the chapters presents a self-contained lesson that illustrates a particular data management task via examples, such as creating data variables and automating error checking. The text also discusses common pitfalls and how to avoid them and provides strategic data management advice. Ideal for both beginning statisticians and experienced users, this handy book helps readers solve problems and learn comprehensive data management skills.

Interpreting and Visualizing Regression Models Using Stata

Michael Mitchell's Interpreting and Visualizing Regression Models Using Stata is a clear treatment of how to carefully present results from model-fitting in a wide variety of settings. It is a boon to anyone who has to present the tangible meaning of a complex model in a clear fashion, regardless of the audience. As an example, many experienced researchers start to squirm when asked to give a simple explanation of the applied meaning of interactions in nonlinear models such as logistic regression. The tools in Mitchell's book make this task much more enjoyable and comprehensible. Mitchell starts with simple linear regression (which is simple in all ways), and then adds polynomials and discontinuities. This is followed by 2-way and 3-way interaction until interpretation of coefficients through words is difficult. By careful use of Stata's marginsplot command, Mitchell shows how well graphs can be used to show effects. He also includes careful verbal interpretation of coefficients to make communications complete. He then extends the methods from linear regression to various types of nonlinear regression, such as multilevel or survival models. A significant difference between this book and most others on regression models is that Mitchell spends quite some time on fitting and visualizing discontinuous models' models where the outcome can change value suddenly at thresholds. Such models are natural in settings such as education and policy evaluation, where graduation or policy changes can make sudden changes in income or revenue. This book is a worthwhile addition to the library of anyone involved in statistical consulting, teaching, or collaborative applied statistical environments.

Updated to reflect the new features of Stata 11, A Gentle Introduction to Stata, Third Edition continues to help new Stata users become proficient in Stata. After reading this introductory text, you will be able to enter, build, and manage a data set as well as perform fundamental statistical analyses. New to the Third Edition A new chapter on the analysis of missing data and the use of multiple-imputation methods Extensive revision of the chapter on ANOVA Additional material on the application of power analysis The book covers data management; good work habits, including the use of basic do-files; basic exploratory statistics, including graphical displays; and analyses using the standard array of basic statistical tools, such as correlation, linear and logistic regression, and parametric and nonparametric tests of location and dispersion. Rather than splitting these topics by their Stata implementation, the material on graphics and postestimation are woven into the text in a natural fashion. The author teaches Stata commands by using the menus and dialog boxes while still stressing the value of do-files. Each chapter includes exercises and real data sets are used throughout.
