Comment from the Stata technical group

In Handbook on Poverty + Inequality, Jonathan Haughton and Shahidur Khandker provide introductions to problems of defining, measuring, and analyzing poverty and inequality. While this book is more focused on the subjects of poverty and inequality than on data-analytic methods, several chapters describe important aspects of how to interpret results from different types of data analysis. The authors also provide quick introductions to basic data analysis, regression modeling, and using complex survey data, in addition to providing an appendix that succinctly introduces Stata in regard to the methods discussed.

This book will be useful for students and researchers who need an introduction to the literature on poverty and inequality and who need a quick primer on data analysis. Researchers and students analyzing data will want an additional book on statistics or econometrics, such as Data Analysis Using Stata, Second Edition by Ulrich Kohler and Frauke Kreuter or Introductory Econometrics: A Modern Approach, Fourth Edition by Jeffrey M. Wooldridge.
