You are right Poggio and Sarkar!

But most of the time, we in Pakistan do not have access to such
materials due to many technical and financial reasons including power
and net disconnectivity, and low level of income which restrict our
use of internet to access such material and purchase books which cost
thousands of Rupees when converted the Dollar price to rupees. This
restricts the use of Stata by many of our students and colleagues in
Stata. I usually motivate my students to use Stata because of its
diversity of usability in basic econometric both for micro and macro
models, qualitative techniques. I want them to have some ready to
access resources so they are very independent in using Stata, have
access to resources which are are either free or have very cheaper
access. The two I mentioned in the previous email tell this
indirectly. I just want to list a few resources so I could present
this to them and they Start loving Stata to use.

Hope some resources are listed in this thread.

Thanks for your time to help me in this regard.
