Support materials for
An Introduction to Stata for Health Researchers

You can download the datasets, do-files, and unofficial commands that were used in An Introduction to Stata for Health Researchers from within Stata using the net command.

The book suggests that the datasets and do-files be downloaded to the directory C:\docs\ishr, but you can store them wherever you wish. To download the files to C:\docs\ishr, type

      . cd C:\docs
      . mkdir ishr
      . cd ishr 

      . net from http://www.stata-press.com/data/ishr/
      . net install ishr-ado 
      . net get ishr-data
      . net get ishr-do

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

ishr.zip PKZIP format, 157 K
ishr.tar.Z Unix tar.Z format 211 K

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