distoutc and svydistoutc: Help file to accompany Stata programmes for undertaking distributional analysis of categorical outcome variables
Published 25 January 2022
Downloadable STATA programmes and accompanying help files for estimating a range of distributional statistics for any categorical variable (e.g. employment status, poverty status etc) overall and for each of the groups identified by each variable included in the variable list (typical variables that can be included in the variable list include gender, age group, socio-economic status). The programmes undertake both cross-sectional and over time distributional analysis and also allow analysis to be undertaken by sub-population groups thus enabling intersectional research. Both a non-survey design and survey design versions of the programme are available (distoutc and svdistouc respectively). Results are automatically saved in an excel file.
