Abstract

Identifying outliers in multivariate data is computationally intensive. The bacon command, presented in this article, allows one to quickly identify out- liers, even on large datasets of tens of thousands of observations. bacon constitutes an attractive alternative to hadimvo, the only other command available in Stata for the detection of outliers.
