Comment from the Stata technical group

Stata: A Really Short Introduction, by Felix Bittmann, is a quick guide to performing data analysis in Stata. With just enough detail for a beginner, Bittmann teaches readers how to use Stata for every step of a research project, from importing data to reporting results. The supporting do-files and other materials provided online allow readers to follow along with every chapter.

Aimed at readers with some basic statistical knowledge, this book focuses on how to prepare data, obtain summary statistics, and perform estimation and diagnostics in Stata. The author begins with a brief introduction to the Stata interface and a basic workflow, which will help readers work efficiently and conduct reproducible analyses. Essential data management tasks such as creating new variables, working with missing values, and combining and reshaping datasets are covered. After learning how to prepare data, readers learn how to obtain descriptive and summary statistics in Stata. This includes creating and editing graphical displays. Bittmann then explains how to work with continuous, categorical, and ordinal variables in regression models. His discussion of linear and logistic regression models, as well as propensity-score matching, is complete with examples of diagnostic statistics.

This introduction to Stata is clear and complete. Bittmann uses both official and community-contributed software, giving readers a full overview of tools available to them. Stata: A Really Short Introduction will appeal to any Stata novices eager to jump-start their analyses.
