Import Data from Stata
The easiest way to import data from Stata is to:
WorkingData = read.dta("Pathway/Filename.dta")
> WorkingData = read.dta("c:/MyDocuments/SampleData.dta")
IMPORTANT NOTE: R recognizes backslash (\) as an escape character. Therefore, all backslashes in a pathway must be changed to forward slashes (/) to be properly read by R.
