# Social Network Analysis Using Stata

The field of Social Network Analysis is one of the most rapidly growing fields of the social sciences. Social network analysis focuses on the relationships that exist between individuals (or other units of analysis) such as friendship, advice, trust, or trade relationships. As such, network analysis is concerned with the visualization and analysis of network structures, as well as with the importance of networks for individuals’ propensities to adopt different kinds of behaviors. Up until now, researchers wishing to implement this type of analysis have been forced to use specialized software for network analysis. A new set of user written commands (developed by Thomas Grund, coauthor of the forthcoming Stata Press title “An Introduction to Social Network Analysis and Agent-Based Modeling Using Stata”) are however, now available for Stata. This workshop introduces the so-called * nwcommands suite* of over 90 Stata commands for social network analysis. The suite includes commands for importing, exporting, loading, saving, handling, manipulating, replacing, generating, visualizing, and animating networks. It also includes commands for measuring various properties of the networks and the individual nodes, for detecting network patterns and measuring the similarity of different networks, as well as advanced statistical techniques for network analysis including MR-QAP and ERGM.

# Generalized Linear Models and Extensions

This text thoroughly covers GLMs, both theoretically and computationally, with an emphasis on Stata. The theory consists of showing how the various GLMs are special cases of the exponential family, showing general properties of this family of distributions, and showing the derivation of maximum likelihood (ML) estimators and standard errors. Hardin and Hilbe show how iteratively reweighted least squares, another method of parameter estimation, is a consequence of ML estimation using Fisher scoring. The authors also discuss different methods of estimating standard errors, including robust methods, robust methods with clustering, Newey–West, outer product of the gradient, bootstrap, and jackknife. The thorough coverage of model diagnostics includes measures of influence such as Cook’s distance, several forms of residuals, the Akaike and Bayesian information criteria, and various *R*^{2}-type measures of explained variability.

**What's new in this edition:**

- New chapter on multivariate models
- New chapter on Bayesian analysis
- Generalized negative binomial models of Waring and Famoye
- Bias-corrected GLMs
- More examples of creating synthetic data for various binomial and count models

**This book is of particular interest for:**

- Applied researchers who analyze binary, count, and categorical data
- Instructors who teach GLM courses
- Researchers familiar with generalized linear models but who are new to Stata
- Stata users looking for a theoretical reference for generalized linear models

# Flexible Parametric Survival Analysis Using Stata: Beyond the Cox Model

This text is concerned with obtaining a compromise between Cox and parametric models that retains the desired features of both types of models. The book is aimed at researchers who are familiar with the basic concepts of survival analysis and with the stcox and streg commands in Stata.

# Discovering Structural Equation Modeling Using Stata

*Discovering Structural Equation Modeling Using Stata*, by Alan Acock, successfully introduces both the statistical principles involved in structural equation modeling (SEM) and the use of Stata to fit these models. The book uses an application-based approach to teaching SEM.

# Aplicaciones en Economía y Ciencias Sociales con Stata

*Aplicaciones en Economía y Ciencias Sociales con Stata* es la primera publicación en español de Stata Press. El contenido ha sido el resultado de un trabajo que reúne a diversos autores en diferentes áreas de conocimiento y que muestran el uso de una variedad de herramientas de análisis disponibles en Stata.

# Thirty years with Stata: A Retrospective

The view from the inside opens with an essay by Bill Gould, Stata's president and cofounder, that discusses the challenges and concepts that guided the design and implementation of Stata.

# Bayesian Analysis with Stata

The book is careful to introduce concepts and coding tools incrementally so that there are no steep patches or discontinuities in the learning curve. The content helps the user see exactly what computations are done for simple standard models and shows the user how those computations are implemented. Understanding these concepts is important for users because Bayesian analysis lends itself to custom or very complex models, and users must be able to code these themselves.

# One Hundred Nineteen Stata Tips

*One Hundred Nineteen Stata Tips* provides concise and insightful notes about commands, features, and tricks that will help you obtain a deeper understanding of Stata. The book comprises the contributions of the Stata community that have appeared in the *Stata Journal* since 2003.

# PROSUITE

ProSuite is an integrated collection of Provalis Research tools that allow one to explore, analyze and relate both structured and unstructured data.

# SIMSTAT 2.6

*Simstat* goes beyond mere statistical analysis. It offers output management features not found in any other program, as well as its own scripting language to automate statistical analysis and to write small applications, interactive tutorials with multimedia capabilities, as well as computer assisted interviewing systems.

# Up and Running in Stata

Up and Running in Stata provides participants with the necessary introductory toolset to enable them to carry out efficient data analysis and data management in Stata in a reproducible manner. The course covers everything from the very basics, in order to get one up and running in Stata, to an overview of the available Stata commands for preliminary data analysis, data management, importing and exporting data formats, merging of databases and the creation of graphs in Stata.

# An Introduction to Stata for Health Researchers

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 and special topics such as power and sample-size computations.

# Probabilité et Statistique pour les Sciences de la Santé: Apprentissage au Moyen du Logiciel Stata

Cet ouvrage (en français) non seulement présente, de façon rigoureuse, les concepts et méthodes statistiques, mais aussi utilise des exemples concrets pour illustrer chaque concept théorique nouvellement introduit.
