Here are some external resources that can help you get started in STATA:
UCLA'S Introduction to Stata Materials, including short movies and lectures notes, as well as textbook examples
If you are interested in exploring more of the math behind the statistics we learn and use, you may find the following resources useful:
1. Students in Math 141 (Introduction to Probability and Statistics) learn statistical computation in R instead of in STATA, but they learn the similar concepts and tests to what we learn in RDDA.
- Course description
- This year, Albyn Jones' section of the course uses a notes pack sold in the Reed bookstore; Albert Kim's follows this free textbook (available as a PDF online).
- Albyn's lecture notes are posted online here. His lab notes can be found here.
2. This interactive website from UAH contains "free, high quality, interactive, web-based resources for students and teachers of probability and statistics."3. The Reed library has many relevant books on mathematical statistics, notably including Miller & Miller's John E. Freund's Mathematical Statistics with Applications (QA276 .M4726 2004) and Bickel & Doksum's Mathematical Statistics: Basic and Selected Topics (QA276 .B47 2001).
