This dataset is designed for teaching multiple regression with dummy variables. The dataset is a subset of data derived from the 2012 General Social Survey, and the example presents an analysis of whether a person’s weight is a linear function of a number of attributes, including whether the person is female and whether the person smokes cigarettes. The dataset file is accompanied by a Teaching Guide, a Student Guide, and a How-to Guide for Stata. The Student Guide and data curation were done by the Odum Institute, and the How-to Guide was co-authored by Abigail-Kate Reid and Nick Allum.
