An Introduction to Statistics and Data Analysis Using Stata: From Research Design to Final Report® by Lisa Daniels and Nicholas Minot provides a step-by-step introduction to research design, data analysis, and professional writing. It begins with primary data collection including questionnaire design, sampling frames, and sample selection. Readers then learn to determine which statistical tests are appropriate and how to conduct these tests with Stata. Finally, readers learn how to describe the results of statistical tests for both non-technical and scholarly audiences. The book is divided into five parts: 1) The research process and data collection; 2) Describing data; 3) Testing hypotheses; 4) Exploring relationships; and 5) Writing a research paper.
