Summary

"A Gentle Introduction to Stata was written for people who need to learn Stata, but who may not have a strong background in statistics or prior experience with other statistical software packages. After completing this book, the reader should be able to enter, build, and manage a dataset, and perform basic statistical analysis. This book is organized like an unfolding research project. You begin by learning how to enter and manage data and how to do basic descriptive statistics and graphical analysis. Then you learn how to perform and interpret standard statistical procedures from t tests, nonparametric tests, and measures of association through ANOVA. Finally, you learn about multiple and logistic regression. Readers who have experience with another statistical package may want to read chapters selectively and refer to this book as needed."--BOOK JACKET.
