Title

Stata Technical Bulletin

Description

The Stata Technical Bulletin (STB) was the predecessor of the Stata Journal (SJ); see [R] sj. The STB is described here.

The STB was a publication for and by Stata users; it provided a forum for users of all disciplines and levels of sophistication. STB reprints are available in both printed and electronic form. The STB reprints contain articles written by StataCorp, Stata users, and others. Articles have included enhancements to Stata (ado-files), tutorials on programming strategies, illustrations of data analysis techniques, discussions on teaching statistics, debates on appropriate statistical techniques, reports on other programs, along with interesting datasets, announcements, questions, and suggestions.

If you want reprints of the STB you must order them from StataCorp (information on how is found below). However, the software is available for free from our website http://www.stata.com.

The bimonthly STB began publication in May 1991 and continued for ten years (through May 2001). The STB was the first publication of its kind for statistical software users. The Stata Journal, which began publication fourth quarter 2001, expands upon this foundation.
