With a robust statistical package and eye-catching graphics Stata is fast becoming the statistical program of choice for political scientists. For speed, versatility, comprehensiveness, and ease-of-use, Stata is hard to beat. It can be a little daunting for beginning students, but no longer. Philip Pollocks accessible introduction to the program offers students a step-by-step tutorial, leading them through descriptive statistics, cross-tabulation analysis, mean comparisons, linear correlation and regression (including dummy variables and interaction effects), and logistic regressionall tailored to political science material. With over 40 carefully crafted exercises and generous use of annotated screenshots, students will be navigating Statas graphics routines in no time. XX feature boxes highlight some of Statas special capabilities while a concluding chapter provides guidance on how to set up a research project, as well as how to use Stata to read raw data.
