• 1. How to Use STATA for Windows Wei Sun Introduction This class is designed to acquaint you with the basic use of STATA for Windows. We will learn the specifics of two types of statistical tests in this class. Familiarity with IBM PCs, Windows, and a basic knowledge of statistics is required, but it is assumed that you have no prior experience with other versions of STATA. What is STATA? STATA is a statistical software package for managing, analyzing, and graphing data. STATA for Windows, Release 5.0 is the most recent windows-based version of STATA, although it also has versions for Macintosh, DOS and UNIX. STATA for Windows is a very powerful program that can perform a wide variety of statistical techniques, such as the t-test, analysis of variance, factor analysis, and multivariate regression. Overview In the course of this class, we will be using STATA to do the following tasks: Exploring the Data The data is loaded into the memory and is viewed using the Data Editor. Descriptive statistics are found in a table by typing simple commands. Conducting a T-Test A t-test can be run in STATA on two of the variables to test whether the two samples came from populations with the same mean. Running a Regression A simple linear regression is run in STATA to test whether a linear relationship exists between two of the variables. Generating plots using STATA will also be introduced.
