Stata is a powerful and yet easy-to-use statistical package that runs on Windows, Macintosh and Unix platforms. This class is designed for people who are just getting started using Stata. The students in the class will have a hands-on experience using Stata for statistics, graphics and data management. The class notes are the scripts for the class available to the students in the class and to others on the Internet. The Stata class notes do not contain any of the output. The class notes are not meant to be a Stata textbook or a reference manual. However, it is possible for individuals to use the class notes to help in learning Stata even if they don’t enroll in the class.
These are the latest version (as of January 2009) of the class notes designed to work with Stata version 10; however, many of the commands used will work with earlier versions of Stata.
