In this case, an answer can be provided to the three questions raised with the same command, tabi (not to be confused with the external command chitesti that carries out testings on fitting to a particular distribution): . tabi 26 21\ 38 44, exact chi2 expected The option expected makes it possible to provide the theoretical counts, in parallel to the observed counts. – Stata does not provide Yates’s correction for continuity for this type of statistical testing among the basic commands. With regard to the rate of improvement in both groups, it is possible to utilize prtesti in the following manner: .

Independent samples The command ttest allows that a Student’s t-test be performed for the comparison of two group means, assuming equal variances (or not) in the population (option unequal). When considering the mothers’ weights on the basis of the indicator of babies born underweight, a brief descriptive summary (mean and standard deviation) can be obtained by means of the command tabstat, or as follows: 26 Biostatistics and Computer-based Analysis of Health Data using Stata . 1f . tabulate low, summarize(lwt) | Summary of weight at last menstrual birthweight | <2500g | Mean period Std.

Tabulate PARITY PARITY2 The results of the one-way ANOVA considering the newly created variable are reported below: . oneway WEIGHT PARITY2 For the linear trend test, two ways are presented (contrasts method and linear regression). To generate a contrast testing the linear trend, we must explicitly instruct 56 Biostatistics and Computer-based Analysis of Health Data using Stata Stata to perform a regression by considering the variable PARITY2 as a qualitative variable (involving dummy variables coding for the two last factor levels).
