Facilitating Applied Economic Research with Stata

  • Christopher F. Baum
Part of the Advances in Computational Economics book series (AICE, volume 18)


We describe the Stata software environment, and illustrate how it may be prof-itably employed for applied economic research. Stata stands between “point and click” statistical packages and matrix languages in terms of extensibility and ease of use, and provides web-accessible features that enhance collaborative research and instruction.
