COMMAND INTERFACE STATA has a Statistics Menu in the style of SPSS. This enables the user to select an item from a pull down menu which opens a dialogue box in which you can build STATA commands. I will not go into detail on how to use this method of analysing data as I would encourage users to learn the commands so that they can write do-files and programs. However, one point that may be useful: The command issued by the dialogue box is submitted as if you typed it by hand. Therefore if you cannot remember the syntax of a command, using the dialogue box and then checking the command in the Review window is a good way to get a reminder.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
