Hello Stata Listserve -

A colleague and I are analyzing categorical survey data using tabulate <varname1> <varname2> if <varname3>, chi2 and gologit2 <outcomevar> <explanatoryvar1> <explanatoryvar2> etc, autofit. In building our models we are using output from the contingency tables we have created using tabulation (both simple 2-way tables as well as the slightly more complicated tables noted above) as well as common sense

Are there other resources (geared toward novices) we ought to be referencing? Have we missed an important step?

Any suggestions as to where we might, as beginners, locate insightful resources - documentation or persons, are much appreciated.
Jen, it isn't totally clear what you want to do. And, fond as I am of gologit2, I don't know that I would jump to it quite as quickly as you seem to be doing.

I would suggest getting a good grounding in Categorical Data Analysis using Stata first. Toward that end, I highly recommend Long & Freese's book:
