Using Stata for Quantitative Analysis

Second Edition


© 2015 | 272 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Using Stata for Quantitative Analysis, Second Edition offers a brief, but thorough introduction to analyzing data with Stata software. It can be used as a reference for any statistics or methods course across the social, behavioral, and health sciences since these fields share a relatively similar approach to quantitative analysis.  In this book, the author teaches the language of Stata from an intuitive perspective, furthering students’ overall retention and allowing a student with no experience in statistical software to work with data in a very short amount of time. The self-teaching style of this book enables novice Stata users to complete a basic quantitative research project from start to finish.  The Second Edition covers the use of Stata 13 and can be used on its own or as a supplement to a research methods or statistics textbook.
