My apologies for the delay in replying to this thread from earlier this month. Lisa Gilmore from StataCorp has downloaded the datasets that accompany the packages that are installed with the -spinst_mais- command. These datasets can now be installed by typing

  net from
  net get mais

or installed by downloading a Zip or Tar file.  The instructions on the
Stata Press web site,, have been
updated to reflect this addition.

Many thanks to Lisa

Best wishes

You're probably right...the datasets will probably appear
soon...tomorrow would be nice...but I'm not expecting much tomorrow.

The text that you quote does not promise any datasets, does it?

It most certainly doesn't, which I find very unusual for Stata Press
publications. I've bought quite a few books from StataCorp and books
related to Stata and (IIRC) this is the first book which doesn't make
the datasets explicitly available.
