Support materials for
An Introduction to Stata for Health Researchers, Third Edition

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

The book suggests that the datasets and do-files be downloaded to the directory C:\docs\ishr3, but you can store them wherever you wish. To download the files to C:\docs\ishr3, type

      . cd C:\docs
      . mkdir ishr3
      . cd ishr3

      . net from http://www.stata-press.com/data/ishr3/
      . net install ishr3-ado 
      . net get ishr3-data
      . net get ishr3-do

If you installed the files from the previous edition of this book, you will need to append the replace option to the net install command.

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

ishr3.zip PKZIP format, 208 K
ishr3.tar.Z Unix tar.Z format 301 K

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