Sample text

2 By default, Stata displays the results in the 'Results' windows page by page; we will then be prompted to press any key or click on the -more- link at the bottom of the page to display the next page. We use the command set more off to show the entire set of results, even if longer than one page, without pausing after each page. This command is useful when we are executing do files and when we are using Stata interactively and want to store all the results appearing in the 'Results' window in a file which can be consulted later.

Note that Stata considers missing values as the highest values. Hence, if we only type replace payl = 3 if apaygu > 400, when apaygu is missing pay 1 has value 3. Adding & apaygu < . ensures that missing values in apaygu are also missing in payl. An alternative way to generate the same variable (we can call it pay2 in this case) consists of recoding apaygu. 8 shows the results of the Pearson chi-squared test. 7486, which is statistically significant, but only at the 10% level of significance. 053.

Comments are pieces of text that we add to our do files but that are not commands. We use special symbols to distinguish the comments from the Stata commands (see below). Comments may be included in the do file to better explain the choices of variables and estimators, for example why we have used estimator A instead of estimator B, or why we have not included variable C in the final model specification. 3 do files When typing the commands interactively, each command has to appear in one line: the 'Enter' key indicates the end of the command.
