Memo on Stata Resources

This post is an old memo on Stata reources that I thought some readers might find useful. To get a nice introduction on YouTube, there is a set of Stata Videos that I discovered last year. These are on Intermediate Social Statistics, and are very well made. The producer is the Department of Sociology at the University of Minnesota.

The first three videos are on introducing Stata; the subsequent five look at linear regression, discrete choice, count models, quantile regression and panel models (all through Stata). Some videos are in two parts (A and B). It's also worth noting that the titles follow the format of "Stata Video #1" and so on. So after watching the first video, one should look for "Stata Video #2" on the right hand side column.

In addition, I particularly recommend the UCLA tutorials, and you could even leave it at that. But if interested, the Bank of England/LSE guide is a good document for reference purposes. Ian Watson's guide is good for reading about getting Stata output into Word docs, but more specialist. As is Roy Wada's guide to "outreg2" (and other things). There is also a useful list of resources provided by the Marginal Revolution blog.
