Polimetrics: A Stata Companion to Introduction to Political Science Research Methods

Polimetrics is an open education resource, licensed CC BY-NC, and designed as a Stata companion to Introduction to Political Science Research Methods, 1st Edition, or IPSRM for short.

This workbook provides a tour of the Stata software, an introduction to cross-sectional, time series, and panel data, and an introduction to a variety of models. We review models where the outcome is linear, binary, ordinal, categorical, and count. Additionally, we have an interpretation chapter on survival models.

Each “Models” chapter has a similar organizational structure: about, estimated time, what is the model, how are models run in Stata, how do we interpret the model results, and a real-world example of model results in a Creative Commons licensed, peer-reviewed journal article. Additionally, mini-assignment instructions and a rubric are included so students can practice their interpretation skills.
