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

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

The book suggests that the datasets and do-files be downloaded to the directory C:\docs\ishr4, but you can store them wherever you wish. To download the files to C:\docs\ishr4, type

      . cd C:\docs   
      . mkdir ishr4
      . cd ishr4

      . net from http://www.stata-press.com/data/ishr4/
      . net install ishr4-ado 
      . net get ishr4-data
      . net get ishr4-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:

ishr4.zip PKZIP format, 310 K
ishr4.tar.Z Unix tar.Z format 507 K

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