Book Description

29 Nov 2010

Maximum Likelihood Estimation with Stata, Fourth Edition is written for researchers in all disciplines who need to compute maximum likelihood estimators that are not available as prepackaged routines. Readers are presumed to be familiar with Stata, but no special programming skills are assumed except in the last few chapters, which detail how to add a new estimation command to Stata. The book begins with an introduction to the theory of maximum likelihood estimation with particular attention on the practical implications for applied work. Individual chapters then describe in detail each of the four types of likelihood evaluator programs and provide numerous examples, such as logit and probit regression, Weibull regression, random-effects linear regression, and the Cox proportional hazards model. Later chapters and appendixes provide additional details about the ml command, provide checklists to follow when writing evaluators, and show how to write your own estimation commands.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, get it at Stata Press 22 Aug 2012
By D. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have used this book and like it, but my major piece of advice to you is go to the stata press webpage where this book, and many others, are available cheaper than on amazon. I'm also a big fan of the Cameron and Trivedi "Microeconometrics Using Stata" book, but it contains only a small section on maximum likelihood.
