 Publisher's Summary
 Using examples from a German longitudinal study, "Data Analysis Using Stata" provides a comprehensive introduction to Stata with an emphasis on data management, linear regression, logistic modeling, and using programs to automate repetitive tasks. The book begins with an introduction to the Stata interface and then proceeds with a discussion of Stata syntax and simple programming tools like foreach loops. The core of the book includes chapters on producing tables and graphs, performing linear regression, and using logistic regression. The remainder of the book includes chapters on reading text files, writing programs and adofiles, and internet resources, such as the search command and the SSC archive.
