It exhibits that despite the fact that meticulously the examine technique is utilized, we will nonetheless be misled by means of the findings. It deals strategies which are mixed. the 1st answer specializes in the social attributes of a research and the second one specializes in how we will be able to evaluation study literature systematically to profit from many necessarily partial reports concurrently.

Example text

Remember that at the beginning of the do file we had set more to be off. If we run the do file, all these graphs will be displayed in quick succession; this might not give us enough time to look at the graphs themselves. Also note that since the graphs appear in a separate window - instead of in the 'Results' window - they are not saved to the - log file. We can use the command graph save Graph "path \ graphname gph" to save the graph in a file which we can open and analyse later on (note the capital letter in the command used to save a graph).

Another way in which we can look first at the data is the stem-and-leaf plot, using the command stem followed by the name of the variable. The command shows the different values of the variable and the number of observations that have each specific value, Try the commands stem amastat or stem apaygu. 3 Inspecting and Recoding Variables Write the commands and compare with the do file in the online appendix Once the dataset is open in memory we can inspect the data, and rename and recode the variables to make them suitable for our analysis.

7 Portabilitv diIity When working with collaborators or using different computers, issues of portability may arise. For example, often the directory where the data are stored has different names and paths in different computers. To make the do file more portable it is good practice to store the file paths to the relevant directories in global macros. The advantage of defining the path using a global macro at the beginning of the do file is that, when moving across different computers, it is only necessary to change the content of this global macro, rather than the file path throughout the do file.
