Book Description

19 Jun 2012

Michael Mitchell's Interpreting and Visualizing Regression Models Using Stata is a clear treatment of how to carefully present results from model-fitting in a wide variety of settings. It is a boon to anyone who has to present the tangible meaning of a complex model in a clear fashion, regardless of the audience. As an example, many experienced researchers start to squirm when asked to give a simple explanation of the applied meaning of interactions in nonlinear models such as logistic regression. The tools in Mitchell's book make this task much more enjoyable and comprehensible.

Mitchell starts with simple linear regression (which is simple in all ways), and then adds polynomials and discontinuities. This is followed by 2-way and 3-way interaction until interpretation of coefficients through words is difficult. By careful use of Stata's marginsplot command, Mitchell shows how well graphs can be used to show effects. He also includes careful verbal interpretation of coefficients to make communications complete. He then extends the methods from linear regression to various types of nonlinear regression, such as multilevel or survival models.

A significant difference between this book and most others on regression models is that Mitchell spends quite some time on fitting and visualizing discontinuous models' models where the outcome can change value suddenly at thresholds. Such models are natural in settings such as education and policy evaluation, where graduation or policy changes can make sudden changes in income or revenue.

This book is a worthwhile addition to the library of anyone involved in statistical consulting, teaching, or collaborative applied statistical environments.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book - but stuff missing 9 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like this and it's great on marginal effects, but it's limited to this. What I'd like to see are those ways of graphing OLS regression models which exist but are updates on stata.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best practical guide to harnessing the new powers of Stata on the planet! 14 Dec 2013
By Real People - Published on Amazon.com
This is by far the best applied guide for harnessing the power of Stata's new revolutionary margins and marginsplot commands that has been or will be written. The exposition is as clear as it can possibly be. Best of all, the topics and examples are laid out in the table of contents, allowing users to pinpoint what they need under the appropriate topic, such as "continuous by categorical by categorical interactions." For each of these topics, the author drills into how users can use the margins command, the contrast command (to provide tests of significance) and the marginsplot command (to visualize the estimated effects) across any combination of variables and conditions. It doesn't get any easier or more empowering than this! A truly awesome book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very lucidly written; very helpful for practitioners 1 Mar 2014
By MJH - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a really great text on interpreting regression results from Stata, including making great use of the power of Stata's post-estimation commands. The book is written for practitioners, not statisticians. It's very clear and has tons of good examples. My copy is dogeared throughout. The only thing I didn't like about it is that I bought it when I was doing fixed-effects regression, and he doesn't deal with that - for panel data he only deals with mixed models. It would be great if a chapter on fixed-effects models could be added because the application of the techniques he talks about to fixed-effects really is different. Having said that, I would buy anything Mitchell wrote about Stata, based on my extensive experience with this book.

An absolutely fantastic resource for people using Stata for regression. Makes the analysis and interpretation of contrasts simple. Everything is laid out is an easy-to-use format. Highly recommended.

A good option for stata users. The book is well structurated and clear. It contains several examples that make it easier to learn the material.
