Описание:

Bayesian Analysis with Stata is written for anyone interested in applying Bayesian methods to real data easily. The book shows how modern analyses based on Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods are implemented in Stata both directly and by passing Stata datasets to OpenBUGS or WinBUGS for computation, allowing Stata's data management and graphing capability to be used with OpenBUGS/WinBUGS speed and reliability.

The book emphasizes practical data analysis from the Bayesian perspective, and hence covers the selection of realistic priors, computational efficiency and speed, the assessment of convergence, the evaluation of models, and the presentation of the results. Every topic is illustrated in detail using real-life examples, mostly drawn from medical research.

The book takes great care in introducing concepts and coding tools incrementally so that there are no steep patches or discontinuities in the learning curve. The book's content helps the user see exactly what computations are done for simple standard models and shows the user how those computations are implemented. Understanding these concepts is important for users because Bayesian analysis lends itself to custom or very complex models, and users must be able to code these themselves.

Описание: Meta-analysis allows researchers to combine the results of several studies into a unified analysis that provides an overall estimate of the effect of interest. This collection of articles from the Stata Journal and Stata Technical Bulletin will be indispensable to researchers who wish to conduct meta-analyses using Stata and learn about the full range of user-written Stata meta-analysis commands. With these articles and the associated Stata software, you gain access to the statistical methods behind the rapid increase in the number of meta-analyses reported in the social and medical literature. Collectively, the articles provide a detailed description of a range of meta-analytic methods. They show how to conduct and interpret meta-analyses; how to produce highly flexible graphical displays; how to use meta-regression; how to examine bias; how to conduct individual participant data meta-analysis; and how to conduct multivariate meta-analysis. This edition also contains three articles on network metaanalysis, a major recent development in meta-analysis methodology.

This work focuses on three types of Stata programming: do-file programming, ado-file programming, and Mata functions that work in conjunction with do- and ado-files. It explains how to usefully automate work with Stata and how to use Stata more effectively through programming on one or more of these levels. After presenting elementary concepts of the command-line interface and commonly used tools for working with programs and data sets, the text follows a unique format by offering "cookbook" chapters after each main chapter. These cookbook chapters look at how to perform a specific programming task with Stata and provide a complete solution to the problem. The text also includes numerous examples of Mata, Stata's matrix programming language.

Описание: Engaging and accessible to students from a wide variety of mathematical backgrounds, Statistics Using Stata combines the teaching of statistical concepts with the acquisition of the popular Stata software package. It closely aligns Stata commands with numerous examples based on real data, enabling students to develop a deep understanding of statistics in a way that reflects statistical practice. Capitalizing on the fact that Stata has both a menu-driven 'point and click' and program syntax interface, the text guides students effectively from the comfortable 'point and click' environment to the beginnings of statistical programming. Its comprehensive coverage of essential topics gives instructors flexibility in curriculum planning and provides students with more advanced material to prepare them for future work. Online resources - including complete solutions to exercises, PowerPoint slides, and Stata syntax (do-files) for each chapter - allow students to review independently and adapt codes to solve new problems, reinforcing their programming skills.

Описание: Explores forecasting times series with Stata 10. This work presents theory, modeling, programming, and interpretation of the major time series models, along with interesting applications to business and risk analysis in finance. It shows how to apply these techniques to real-life social science, economic, business, financial and medical data.

Описание: Uses the method of maximum likelihood to a large extent to ensure reasonable, and in some cases optimal procedures. This work treats the basic and important topics in multivariate statistics.

Описание: An Introduction to Survival Analysis Using Stata, Revised Third Edition is the ideal tutorial for professional data analysts who want to learn survival analysis for the first time or who are well versed in survival analysis but are not as dexterous in using Stata to analyze survival data. This text also serves as a valuable reference to those readers who already have experience using Stata’s survival analysis routines. The revised third edition has been updated for Stata 14, and it includes a new section on predictive margins and marginal effects, which demonstrates how to obtain and visualize marginal predictions and marginal effects using the margins and marginsplot commands after survival regression models. Survival analysis is a field of its own that requires specialized data management and analysis procedures. To meet this requirement, Stata provides the st family of commands for organizing and summarizing survival data. This book provides statistical theory, step-by-step procedures for analyzing survival data, an in-depth usage guide for Stata's most widely used st commands, and a collection of tips for using Stata to analyze survival data and to present the results. This book develops from first principles the statistical concepts unique to survival data and assumes only a knowledge of basic probability and statistics and a working knowledge of Stata. The first three chapters of the text cover basic theoretical concepts: hazard functions, cumulative hazard functions, and their interpretations; survivor functions; hazard models; and a comparison of nonparametric, semiparametric, and parametric methodologies. Chapter 4 deals with censoring and truncation. The next three chapters cover the formatting, manipulation, stsetting, and error checking involved in preparing survival data for analysis using Stata's st analysis commands. Chapter 8 covers nonparametric methods, including the Kaplan–Meier and Nelson–Aalen estimators and the various nonparametric tests for the equality of survival experience. Chapters 9–11 discuss Cox regression and include various examples of fitting a Cox model, obtaining predictions, interpreting results, building models, model diagnostics, and regression with survey data. The next four chapters cover parametric models, which are fit using Stata's streg command. These chapters include detailed derivations of all six parametric models currently supported in Stata and methods for determining which model is appropriate, as well as information on stratification, obtaining predictions, and advanced topics such as frailty models. Chapter 16 is devoted to power and sample-size calculations for survival studies. The final chapter covers survival analysis in the presence of competing risks.

Описание: Data Analysis Using Stata, Third Edition is a comprehensive introduction to both statistical methods and Stata. Beginners will learn the logic of data analysis and interpretation and easily become self-sufficient data analysts. Readers already familiar with Stata will find it an enjoyable resource for picking up new tips and tricks. The book is written as a self-study tutorial and organized around examples. It interactively introduces statistical techniques such as data exploration, description, and regression techniques for continuous and binary dependent variables. Step by step, readers move through the entire process of data analysis and in doing so learn the principles of Stata, data manipulation, graphical representation, and programs to automate repetitive tasks. This third edition includes advanced topics, such as factor-variables notation, average marginal effects, standard errors in complex survey, and multiple imputation in a way, that beginners of both data analysis and Stata can understand. Using data from a longitudinal study of private households, the authors provide examples from the social sciences that are relatable to researchers from all disciplines. The examples emphasize good statistical practice and reproducible research. Readers are encouraged to download the companion package of datasets to replicate the examples as they work through the book. Each chapter ends with exercises to consolidate acquired skills.
