Speaking of Stata
By Patrick McLeod, Research and Statistical Support Services Consultant
Hello! My name is Patrick McLeod. I’m the newest addition to the UNT Computing Center’s Research and Statistical Support group. This article is intended to give someone who is interested in learning more about Stata an introduction to the latest version of Stata (Stata 8), how to sign up for the Stata listserv, and some information on Stata Corp.
Stata 7 versus Stata 8: Having Your Cake and Eating It, Too
There are several routine improvements of Stata 8 over Stata 7, but the big news is the addition of a GUI interface to Stata 8. This marks the first time a version of Stata adds an interface other than the traditional Stata command line.
Purists, fear not! The command line is intact and functional as always (and, in my estimation, still the best way of doing things), but the GUI interface does offer a quantum leap in functionality for employing Stata as a teaching tool in undergraduate classes and for “quick and dirty” analyses where the researcher does not want write lines of code to generate a basic result.
