Reproducible research: Weaving with Stata and StatWeave
Reproducible research is one of many names for the same concept: writing one report document that contains both the report and the commands from a statistical or programming language needed to produce the results and graphics contained in the report. It is called reproducible research because any interested researcher can then reproduce another’s entire report verbatim. (Programmers call this same concept literate programming.) The utility of reproducible research documents extends far beyond research or programming. They allow rapid updates should there be additional data. They can also be used in teaching for generating differing examples or test questions, because different parameters will generate different examples. In this presentation, I will show you how to use a third-party application to embed Stata code, as well as its output, in either LaTeX or OpenOffice documents. I will also use example documents (including the talk itself) to show how you can update a report, its results, and its graphics by using new data or changing parameters.
