An Introduction to Stata for Health Researchers, Fourth Edition methodically covers data management, simple description and analysis, and more advanced analyses often used in health research, including regression models, survival analysis, and evaluation of diagnostic methods. A chapter on graphics explores most graph types and describes how to modify the appearance of a graph before submitting it for publication.
The authors emphasize the importance of good documentation habits to prevent errors and wasted time. Demonstrating the use of strategies and tools for documentation, they provide robust examples and offer the datasets for download online.

"While impossible to cover every aspect of statistical analysis in a single book, this book does a nice job of covering the most common methods, from simple to complex, with an emphasis on the common methods seen in the field of health research ... ideal to keep on hand as a reference manual."
-Melissa Plegue, University of Michigan in International Statistical Review
