Description

Philip H. Pollock III is professor of political science at the University of Central Florida

The exercises at the end of each chapter gradually increase in complexity to the point where students with no experience in the subject can perform and understand sophisticated multivariate techniques. Philip H. Pollock III is professor of political science at the University of Central Florida.

Bestselling author Philip H. Pollock III builds students’ analytic abilities and develops their statistical reasoning with new data, fresh exercises, and engaging examples.

Only 8 left in stock (more on the way). It's nice that the book obviously complements Pollock's main textbook but, unlike many other "companions," does not require it. The book covers most topics that undergraduates will need in an introductory class in a sensible way. I think that it is calibrated very well to its audience, which is why I keep assigning i. -Matthew Wright.

This attractive and value-priced workbook, an ideal complement to Pollock’s Essentials of Political Analysis, is a must-have for any political science student working with Stata. Give your students the SAGE edge!

Popular for its speed, flexibility, and attractive graphics, Stata is a powerful tool for political science students. With Pollock′s second edition, students quickly learn Stata with step-by-step instruction, more than 50 exercises, customized datasets, annotated screen shots, boxes that highlight Stata′s special capabilities, and guidance on using Stata to read raw data.

Updates to this edition include: 

Comprehensive coverage of the Stata Graph Editor; Enhanced discussion of graph types, with brand-new coverage of group means and the twoway command; New and updated datasets, including GSS and NES (all datasets include additional variables for use on research papers, exams, or assignments); New end-of-chapter exercises, which gradually increase in difficulty to reinforce and build on key concepts; and Improved guidance on using Internet-available data, from downloading to inputting multiple formats- Excel, HTML, and PDF.

The book does a bang-up job of teaching a body the ropes of using Stata, and helps one to better understand the use of data generally in political science.

I ordered this book for my statistics class and it arrived in no time. The book is new and the disc was attached to it and it worked perfectly!

Class but the book was in pretty good condition except the right corner looked like it was wet and then peeled off

No problems, good copy, delivery timely. The book itself is not so great, but the seller was good.
