Good Morning StatListers,

I am new, very new to Stata - just migrating from Spss....
Having made that transition myself, I highly recommend Hamilton's book as an intro to Stata:

I am using Stata version 6.

I need to estimate a logistic regression model, and interested in obtaining
standardized coeffs (betas) and odds ratios. does the logit and logistic
commands give these or there are special macros i need to dowload?
Life might be easier if you had Stata 8. However, hopefully the -spostado- routines of Long and Freese will work for you. Go to

http://www.indiana.edu/~jslsoc/spost.htm

for information about the routines and how to install them. In particular, I think you want their -listcoef- command.


Secondly, I am using this web-book "Logistic Regression with Stata
by Xiao Chen, Phil Ender, Michael Mitchell & Christine Wells" - would it give me
adequate intro to logistic regression modeling in stata?
Another brief introduction to logistic regression with Stata is at

http://www.nd.edu/~rwilliam/stats2/Logistic-Stata.pdf

Very good and much more in depth is Long and Freese's book:
