Nazaria Solferino asked, in reply to my earlier posting, 

Could you give me some suggestions about transformation?

If you want a copy for yourself, just use Stata's 
-copy- command. 

I see that document was last revised in 1999. These 
days I am more inclined to point to generali{s|z}ed 
linear models as a deeper solution. There is 
a very good pedagogic paper 

Lane, P.W. 2002. Generalized linear models
in soil science. European Journal of Soil 
Science 53, 241-251

which focuses on the merits of transformation 
as compared with generalized linear models. 
I owe this reference to Stata user Allan Reese. 

You may be able to access it electronically. 
Don't be put off by the mention of soil science; 
you don't need to understand anything much about 
soil science. The examples are, as it were, 
just like the auto data.
