This is by far the best tutorial on descriptive statistics commands in Stata. Exel commands are given also in the first half of this very long page.

## Stata help

As part of my data analysis for my honours thesis I’ve had to use Stata. Having learned EViews over the past two years didn’t help at all, except when it came to looking for answers! I found this Queen’s University guide to Stata by Mike Abbott: http://econ.queensu.ca/pub/graduate/stata/

Here is a breakdown of the tutorials to help you find which tutorial you need for that pesky Stata problem!

Tutorial 1: **Getting Started with Stata**

Tutorial 2: **Introduction to Selected Stata Commands**

Tutorial 3: **The Basics of OLS Estimation in ***Stata*

Tutorial 4: **Generating and Graphing Predicted Values and Residuals After ****OLS Estimation**

Tutorial 5: **Hypothesis Testing of Individual Regression Coefficients: Two-Tail ****t-tests, Two-Tail F-tests, and One-Tail t-tests**

Tutorial 6: **Functional Form and Variable Re-scaling in Simple Linear ****Regression Models**

Tutorial 7: **Estimation and Hypothesis Testing in Multiple Linear Regression ****Models**

Tutorial 8: **Using Dummy Variable Regressors to Test for Coefficient ****Differences in Multiple Linear Regression Models**

Hopefully these tutorials will help get you going!
