If sleep==3 In order to have consistent coding for ‘yes’ and ‘no’, we recode the variable sleep recode sleep 1=2 2=1 and to avoid confusion in the future, we label the values as follows: label label label label define values values values yn 1 no 2 yes sex yn life yn sleep yn The last three commands could also have been carried out in a foreach loop: foreach x in sex life sleep { label values `x´ yn } First, we could compare the suicidal women with the non-suicidal by simply tabulating suitable summary statistics in each group.

These commands end in i, where i stands for immediate command. 1). 1 © 2004 by CRC Press LLC if the means, standard deviations, and sample sizes are given. 4, results can be saved in local macros using the syntax local a = exp The result may then be used again by enclosing the local macro name in single quotes `´ (using two different keys on the keyboard). 236068 Matrices can also be defined and matrix algebra carried out interactively. 10 Brief introduction to programming So far we have described commands as if they would be run interactively.
