Support materials for
A Gentle Introduction to Stata, Fifth Edition

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

      . net from http://www.stata-press.com/data/agis5/
      . net describe agis5 
      . net get agis5 

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/agis5/
      . net describe agis5_small
      . net get agis5_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:

agis5.zip PKZIP format, 1.4 MB
agis5.tar.Z Unix tar.Z format 1.8 MB
agis5_small.zip PKZIP format, 371 K
agis5_small.tar.Z Unix tar.Z format 492 K

We suggest that you create a new directory and copy the materials there.
