Explanation of errata

An erratum tells you where to find an error and what correction should be applied. Details are provided below using an example from the Stata version 10 manual errata.

The erratum below shows that for the first printing of the Base Reference Manual, Volume 1, the number of estimation results stored in memory should be changed from 20 to 300. You can find the error on page 396 in the second item under the heading "Remarks:".

(1) [R] estimates, p. 396, second item under Remarks

2. You can store up to 20 estimation results in memory so that they are at your fingertips. 2. You can store up to 300 estimation results in memory so that they are at your fingertips.

An erratum has two parts.


The printing number of a book

When Stata makes changes to a book or manual, we change the printing number (the ISBN remains the same). You can determine the printing number of a book by looking on the page that gives the ISBN, copyright notice, etc. (one of the first pages in the book). You will find a line with numbers counting down from ten. The number at the end of this line is the printing number. So, for instance, the first printing of a book would have a line like this:

        10  9  8  7  6  5  4  3  2  1

The third printing would have a line like this:

        10  9  8  7  6  5  4  3
