Part I:

Good Research
Practices

If you think your work
matters
,
then takes steps to ensure
that you do it well.
Resources
WHY
Replication
Think of the process of making twins
Verified results

can be "identical," reproduced using the same data and procedure for analysis, or "fraternal," derived from different data but use
the same procedure for analysis.
Using Stata
Prevents
researchers from making biased decisions that favor their arguments or conning the public as each step in the analysis process is available.
Reduces
probability of error from human fallibility.
Cuts down
on the time and expense associated with recreating the wheel -- for researcher and others.
EFFICIENCY
Work better, not harder!
Positively impacts your ability to handle your growing list of responsibilities.

Boice finds that those who work most efficiently, have the best work/life balance, experience more positive outcomes, and are

Updates
to datasets can be loaded quickly cutting down on the time needed to rerun your analysis.
