Book Description

This book is an introductory guide to programming and coding in Stata. Commonly encountered code in the field of medical statistics as well as the analyses of observational data are presented.

For those who are involved in the analyses of observational studies, the need to sometimes assemble large datasets will necessitate a detailed understanding of loops and macros. This book covers these materials early on and then describes other commonly required coding commands.

For those who program in a controlled environment (.e.g. medical statisticians who perform analyses for regulatory bodies), the production of log files, a suggested folder structure and analysis pathway are covered. This book also includes a wide range of tabulation commands and other methods of producing tables of descriptive statistics. The text also then provides a clear explanation of how to perform some inferential analyses (including how to extract and format the coefficients for use in subsequent reports).

The focus on coding allows beginners to grasp the basics of coding and programming, as well as allowing established researchers to hone their skills and become more advanced programmers.

Key Features:

  • Covers the fundamental of using and understanding Stata.
  • Able to be used by anyone looking to learn the basics of coding.
  • Introduces and explains difficult concepts such as macros from the outset.
