Each chapter describes the analysis appropriate for a particular application, focusing on the medical, social, and behavioral fields. The authors begin each chapter with descriptions of the data and the statistical techniques to be used. The methods covered include descriptives, simple tests, variance analysis, multiple linear regression, logistic regression, generalized linear models, survival analysis, random effects models, and cluster analysis. The core of the book centers on how to use Stata to perform analyses and how to interpret the results. The chapters conclude with several exercises based on data sets from different disciplines.
A concise guide to the latest version of Stata, A Handbook of Statistical Analyses Using Stata, Fourth Edition illustrates the benefits of using Stata to perform various statistical analyses for both data analysis courses and self-study.

Praise for previous editions:
"...a useful compendium of examples of Stata analyses and data management tricks...covers the gamut of major statistical applications, from the most basic to some quite sophisticated...extremely useful, well-written, and worth the price."
-The American Statistician
"The book is very well written and is both an excellent introduction to Stata and a useful reference book on applied statistics. I would certainly recommend it to anybody interested in this package."
-Significance, December 2004
"... the handbook starts with a brief, but very useful, introduction to Stata including getting help with Stata, data management, writing simple programs, and how to keep Stata up to date. Particularly useful will be the introduction to the new graphics facilities which have changed out of all recognition from that available in previous versions. ... The main strengths of this well-written and useful handbook lie in the broad range of statistical methods it covers and in the clear step-by-step examples."
