Speaking Stata: How to repeat yourself without going mad


  • Nicholas J. Cox

    () (University of Durham, UK)


This column will focus on how to improve your fluency in Stata. Over the next issues we will look at Stata problems of intermediate size which turn out to be soluble with a few command lines. As an introduction, systematic ways of repeating the same or similar operations are surveyed to give one overview of the territory to be covered. Copyright 2001 by Stata Corporation.
