Code Examples

Functionality is simple. Load webuse and then access any online Stata dataset using the webuse() function. This will assign the named dataset from Stata 15 to the .GlobalEnv:

library("webuse")
webuse("auto")
head(auto)

As an option, you can specify the Stata version of the dataset and the environment via version and envir parameters:

library("webuse")
webuse("auto", version = 15, envir = parent.frame())
head(auto)
