Support materials for
A Gentle Introduction to Stata, Revised Third Edition

You can download the datasets and do-files that were used in A Gentle Introduction to Stata, Revised Third Edition from within Stata using the net command. At the Stata prompt, type

      . net from http://www.stata-press.com/data/agis3r/
      . net describe agis3r 
      . net get agis3r 

Some of the datasets used in the book are too large for Small Stata to handle. To download smaller versions of these datasets, type

      . net from http://www.stata-press.com/data/agis3r/
      . net describe agis3r_small
      . net get agis3r_small

The dataset names will be the same as the larger version with _small appended; for example, descriptive_gss.dta becomes descriptive_gss_small.dta.

If you do not have an Internet connection from within Stata, you can download one of the following files:
