Comment from the Stata technical group

Data Science for Business and Decision Making, by Luiz Paulo Fávero and Patrícia Belfiore, is an introductory text ideal for students and researchers. It covers key concepts of data science and demonstrates how to perform analyses in Stata, Excel, and SPSS.

This book covers a range of statistical concepts, from descriptive statistics to multilevel models. The authors begin by describing the different types of variables, which is essential for discussing the appropriate descriptive statistics and regression models for each type. Then, they cover probabilistic statistics, statistical inference, and advanced topics, including exploratory data analysis and generalized linear models. Noting the importance of optimization models in the decision-making process, the authors dedicate individual chapters to linear, network, and integer programming models. The remaining chapters discuss quality control, data mining, and multilevel models.

This book is both a conceptual and applied guide to data science. There are conceptual problems with worked solutions throughout each chapter. These allow readers to continuously apply the concepts they learn. Additionally, the software exercises provide readers hands-on practice using Stata, Excel, or SPSS. Datasets for each exercise are made available online.
