Stata commands

Load csv data

cd /home/paul/ 
insheet using filename.csv

tsset and xtset for panel variables

The 2 commands are basically similar (STATA forum discussion). tsset mentions "If you tsset panelvar timevar, you do not need to xtset panelvar timevar to use the xt commands."
xtset country year

View available test results

How to access stored estimation results
Stata help: "to see what was returned from an estimation command", type:
ereturn list

Then display results with:
 display e(depvar)
matrix list e(b)

View the source code of a command
