Datasets for Stata Structural Equation Modeling Reference Manual, Release 12

Datasets used in the Stata documentation were selected to demonstrate how to use Stata. Some datasets have been altered to explain a particular feature. Do not use these datasets for analysis.

To download a dataset:

  • Click on a filename to download it to a local folder on your machine.
  • Alternatively, you can first establish an Internet connection, and then, in Stata's Command window, type

      . webuse filename, clear

    to use the file. You could then save the file with Stata's save command.
