st: RE: How to use in-built programs or explanations posted in Stata's webpage?
The Stata Journal is a journal obtainable
by subscription. That is, either
you must pay for the journal yourself or
your institution must take out a subscription.
Of course, someone you know or can contact locally
may be a subscriber.
gives more details. So, the Journal is more
like a book from Stata Press, which you
must buy separately, than an in-built part
of Stata. However, both are issued by StataCorp.
If you want to think further about this,
gives a cumulative index of volumes 1 to 4, and
gives the contents of the current issue,
a very special issue to mark the 20th
anniversary of Stata's first official appearance
in January 1985.
Naturally, I recommend subscribing to
the journal to any serious Stata user. The
Journal includes a mix of original and expository
material and aims to match the high statistical
and presentational standards of Stata itself.
Note, however, that programs published in the
Stata Journal may all be downloaded from the
Stata website, regardless of whether you
are a subscriber. Thus if you
. search mrtab
in an -update-d version of Stata, you will see pointers
to programs written by Ben Jann on multiple responses
tabulation and graphing, which you can then download.
In the case of the article you cite, which seems
oddly familiar, no programs were released with the
article, which is of a tutorial nature.
