Support materials for
A Gentle Introduction to Stata, Second Edition
You can download the datasets and do-files that were used in A Gentle Introduction to Stata, Second Edition from within Stata using the net command. At the Stata prompt, type
. net from http://www.stata-press.com/data/agis2/ . net describe agis2 . net get agis2
Some of the datasets used in the book are too large for Small Stata to handle. To download smaller versions of these datasets, type
. net from http://www.stata-press.com/data/agis2/ . net describe agis2_small . net get agis2_small
The dataset names will be the same as the larger version with _small appended; for example, descriptive_gss.dta becomes descriptive_gss_small.dta.
If you do not have an Internet connection from within Stata, you can download one of the following files:
|agis2.zip||Zip format, 1.1 MB|

|agis2_small.zip||Zip format, 198 K|
|agis2_small.tar.Z||Unix tar.Z format 249 K|
We suggest that you create a new directory and copy the materials there.
