Hi, I was thinking about using Stata for regression analysis. I was wondering about Stata's limitations for this type of work specifically for multivariate regression. Please let me know the pros and cons of Stata with regards to regression. Thank you.
Stata has capabilities to estimate a broad range of generalized linear model and generalized linear mixed models. It also offers quantile regression and other "robust" regression models. It also has a numerous ways of examining residuals, identifying outliers, etc. OLS regression is certainly is not a problem. An OLS regression model would be specified as easily as reg y x1 x2.
