Every copy of Stata ships with complete PDF documentation, including the
Base Reference Manual, User’s Guide, Data-Management
Reference Manual, Graphics Reference Manual, and all the
programming and specialized statistics manuals. The PDF documentation is
linked into the existing interactive help file system. Continue to use the
help files to review syntax and options and to see short examples; click on
the link in the title of the help file to be taken to the corresponding
entry in the PDF documentation.
Of course, for extended reading sessions, many people (including us)
prefer reading a printed book, so the printed documentation is
also available. Click here to purchase the printed documentation. There you can also view additional PDF-formatted sample entries.
