Longest: Using Stata for Quantitative Analysis 3e

Using Stata for Statistical Analysis, Third Edition is a supplemental book for undergraduate and graduate level courses in research methods and statistical analysis where Stata is used. It can be applied as a reference for any statistics or methods course involving such disciplines as sociology, political science, economics, and psychology. These fields share a relatively similar approach to quantitative analysis and are all part of the trend towards using Stata as their primary statistical program. Author Kyle C. Longest proposes to teach the language of Stata from an intuitive perspective, furthering students' overall retention, allowing for a student with no experience in statistical software to be able to sit down and be working with data in a very short amount of time.
