Further Resources

Further sources will be posted here during the course. Please let me know of others which it would be useful to share.

 
Statistical Software  
Harvard University Site Licensing software SPSS Bundle License 2009 ($150) and Stata V10.0 (various flavors)
Stata Note that you should either use Stata SE (for large datasets) or Stata IC (Standard). Small Stata is too limited to handle  most of the datasets. The website contains useful links, including to the Stata Listserve maintained by Harvard School of Public Health.
SPSS SPSS Statistics V17.0 includes information and a free downloadable trial version for 30 days.

 
SPSS Manuals  
SPSS Statistics Brief Guide V17.0 Good basic introduction to handling datasets. 224pp
SPSS Statistics Base Users Guide V17.0 The most useful and comprehensive guide to all the commands you will use for frequencies, crosstabs, charts, means, factords analysis and OLS regressions. Highly recommended. pp640
SPSS Statistics Command Syntax Reference Extensive reference guide to search for any command syntax but not to print out due to length. pp2342
SPSS Regression Shorter guide just for logistic regression techniques. pp67.
SPSS Advanced Statistics Mainly useful for multilevel modelling (HLM), GLM and Cox Regression techniques
