This is a most impressive teaching and learning resource. Mehmetoglu and Jakobsen expertly introduce introductory to advanced social science data analysis skills in a clear and engaging manner. This text teaches students how to do data analysis in a transparent and principled manner.
Mehmetoglu and Jakobsen's book offers a concise, yet comprehensive, introduction to the statistical methods that are widely used in data analysis. In addition to presenting a thorough overview of the basics of conducting empirical research, the book also emphasizes how to use Stata to analyze data in practice. This book is an excellent starting point for those who are interested in empirical work.
This is a great book for my beginners level students. The structure is intuitive and I likes the Stata examples. The part on using do-files could have been more detailed and could have covered writing Stata code in more depth. But overall, a great & well written resource. I will adopt it for the reading list, I'm considering making it essential reading on my module.
