DEATON: Stata modules to analyze household surveys
Deaton.zip contains the STATA code used to produce the results in "The Analysis of Household Surveys: A Microeconometric Approach to Development Policy", by Angus Deaton. This book, published for the World Bank by The Johns Hopkins University Press, 1997, is about the analysis of household survey data from developing countries and about how such data can be used to cast light on a range of policy issues. Data from several different developing countries are used for illustration and one of the aims of the book is to bring together the relevant statistical and economic methods that are useful for building the bridge between data and policy. These programs are not intended to be self-contained; they cannot be run as they stand without modification and, at the very least, the addition of the user's own dataset. The idea is not to supply a software package that will replicate the analyses in the text, but to provide the code to serve as a template for the user's own analysis. In order to understand and use the selected programs here, and have access to the full set of programs, you will need a copy of the book.
