Handling missing data in Stata—a whirlwind tour

Missing data is a pervasive issue in epidemiological, clinical, social, and economic studies. This presentation offers a brief overview of the conceptual issues raised by missing data, followed by an overview of some of the principled statistical methods of handling missing data that are implemented in Stata 12, including multiple imputation and inverse probability weighting.

Working in the margins to plot a clear course

Bill Rising
StataCorp LP

Visualizing the true effect of a predictor over a range of values can be difficult for models that are not parameterized in their natural metric, such as logistic or (even more so) probit models. Interaction terms in such models cause even more fogginess. This illustrates how both the margins and the marginsplot commands can make for much clearer explanations of effects for both nonstatisticians and statisticians alike.
