# Introduction

Some example Stata code - a code block and the logged note:

sysuse auto
generate gpm = 1/mpg
(1978 Automobile Data)

A continued example - code and log:

ttest gpm, by(foreign)
Two-sample t test with equal variances
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Group |     Obs        Mean    Std. Err.   Std. Dev.   [95% Conf. Interval]

Foreign |      22    .0431285    .0024398    .0114439    .0380545    .0482024

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
diff = mean(Domestic) - mean(Foreign)                         t =   3.2896
Ho: diff = 0                                     degrees of freedom =       72

Ha: diff < 0                 Ha: diff != 0                 Ha: diff > 0
Pr(T < t) = 0.9992         Pr(|T| > |t|) = 0.0016          Pr(T > t) = 0.0008

A graph, (cleaned) code with the log hidden:

graph twoway scatter gpm weight

The resulting graph: Individual data

And some hidden cleanup follows.
