A note about missing data: Many of the variables in these data sets have special values for missing data, such as 8888 or -9. In most cases, the statistical package (e. g. , Stata, SAS, SUDAAN) will not know that these values should be considered missing, and they will be included as legitimate values in any analysis that is run. To convert these values to missing, please see our Stata FAQ if you are using Stata, and our SAS learning module on missing data or our SAS FAQ if you are using either SAS or SUDAAN.
The book is best used for a more advanced statistical models class, after students have taken their basic regression/correlation class (and possibly after a categorical data class). The homework assignments at the end of each chapter are a useful addition to the text, with the required data sets available on the book's website. I find that the homework assignments are best supplemented with additional examples with other data sets, especially for classes taught repeatedly, but they are a great starting place. I strongly recommend this book to anyone wanting a 'how to' book for conducting and interpreting analyses on complex survey data, supplemented with extensive documentation on model fitting and diagnostics under a complex survey design (where they are available). It is immediately useful, with Stata code for all of the analyses provided in the text and SAS, Stata, MPlus, R, SUDAAN.
