5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stata tool for Econometrics 10 Feb 2012
By PMB - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wish I had this book early on when I started taking Econometrics classes. It is all graphs and their commands. Everything is in color and very easily laid out. This book shows you all the options for each graph as well. Although I learned different commands to fit lines and they were different in the book so it took a little bit to learn how the book is doing it. But hey that's Stata for yuh. I would save all your graphing commands in a do-file for future reference as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive content 15 Feb 2013
By Andrew E. Schulman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book looks nice, and as others have noted it's nicely indexed and makes it easy to see how each new graph's command has changed from the last one to give a new effect.

But there's a lot of redundant content here. In each chapter about a new graph type, you see the same options explained again. Once you know how the options work to change axes, titles, and legend for twoway plots, you shouldn't need to have it explained how to do the same for bar graphs, dot plots, box plots, pie charts, and so on. But that's exactly what the book does. In one chapter after another I found myself skipping over sections of what looked like the same content I'd already seen.

I have to say I didn't learn much from the book. For example, the author shows you how to build up a complex graph slowly, by adding options one at a time. Good advice, but by the time the book came I had already figured that out and then some, just by reading the help in Stata and trying things.

The interesting material is in just a few sections. The chapter on the graph editor has a good comparison of what changes are easiest to make in the graph editor versus graph commands, and how best to use the two together. The last chapter shows several kinds of interesting specialized plots, and how to combine multiple plots into one.

But overall what you get doesn't justify the high price of this book. It's not a book I'll need to look back at; I think I'll sell my copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars very informative 14 May 2012
By Bionic Hedgehog - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Love the fact that part of every successive code that is different from the previous one is highlighted with a unique color. So it is easy to find the kind of code you are looking for amidst a sea of graphs that look largely similar. I have just gone through the box plots and it has been very informative.
5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable guide to graphics 10 April 2013
By Stephen Weinberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
STATA graphics can do a lot, but the documentation on the graphing commands is laborious. It has to be, from the sheer technical complexity of all the options. It is vastly easier to see what the different options do when you have actual illustrations.

If you use STATA as your primary analysis program, this book is a must have.
