Hello,

A couple of weeks ago I told you about a contest we were having on our
Facebook page that asked users about their favorite command or feature
in Stata. The contest has come to an end, and I wanted to share the
results with you.

                         One of the most remarkable experiences with
                         Stata was when I learned to use loops. Making
                         repetitive procedures in so short amounts of
                         time is really amazing! I LIKE STATA!

                         My Favorite STATA command is by far COLLAPSE!
                         Getting descriptive statistics couldn't be
                         any easier!

                         My favourite command is 'oaxaca', a
                         user-written command (by Ben Jann from Zurich)
                         which can be used to carry out the so-called
                         Oaxaca-Blinder decomposition. I often use it
                         in my research and it saves a lot of time -
                         which easily makes it favourite!

We really enjoyed reading all the entries so we turned them into a blog
post for everyone to enjoy. You can see the complete list of entries,
along with the number of votes, at

favorite may be listed.
