An Introduction to Stata for Health Researchers


  • Svend Juul
  • Morten Frydenberg


Svend Juul and Morten Frydenberg's An Introduction to Stata for Health Researchers, Third Edition is distinguished in its careful attention to detail. The reader will learn not only how to use Stata for statistical analysis but also the skills needed to make the analysis reproducible. The authors use a friendly, down-to-earth tone and include tips gained from a lifetime of collaboration and consulting. The book is based on the assumption that the reader has some basic knowledge of statistics but no knowledge of Stata. The authors build the reader’s abilities as a builder would build a house: laying a firm foundation in Stata; framing a general structure in which good work can be accomplished; adding the details that are particular to various types of statistical analyses; and finally, trimming with a thorough treatment of graphics.
