Author Info

  • Christopher F Baum

Christopher Baum's An Introduction to Stata Programming is worthwhile for anyone wanting to learn about programming in Stata. For the beginner, Baum assumes only that the user is familiar with Stata, and so he builds up accordingly. For the more advanced Stata programmer, the book introduces Stata’s Mata programming language and provides optimization tips for day-to-day work. All readers will find better, new ways to approach old tasks. The breadth and depth of this book make it a necessity for anyone interested in programming in Stata.
