New version of parseuas now available

#useragentstrings

We are pleased to announce that the revised version 1.4 of the #stata module – parseuas – is now available for download. The parseuas module extracts detailed information from user agent strings. The user agent is software that acts as interface to the user, for example a web browser. The client software sending the request to a server is identified in a user agent header field. The header contains the user agent string. In general, user agent strings include information on the browser name, the browser version, the device type, and the operating system. The parseuas module displays and optionally stores this information in new variables as specified by the user. The revised version 1.4 features a fix for Opera browsers and identification of some newer or previously unrecognized browsers such as Samsung Internet Browser, Vivaldi, or Yandex. One important area of application of the parseuas module is web #surveys in which user agent strings are commonly collected as #paradata. For example, the parseuas command can be used to determine whether respondents used a smartphone, a tablet or a personal computer to answer the questions in a web survey.

Article on: 

"Big Five personality traits predict successful transitions from school to vocational education and training: A large-scale study. Frontiers in Psychology". The authors examined the role played by personality traits of lower and intermediate secondary schools students (Hauptschüler and Realschüler) in a successful transition from school to vocational education and training (VET). They defined “successful transitions” comprehensively on the basis of 7 criteria such as the number of acceptances for VET positions, final VET grade, actual dropout, and satisfaction with VET. The main findings of the analyses are as follows: To a certain extent, personality traits can predict the success of educational transitions, even beyond the socioeconomic status of the parental home and cognitive ability. It is particularly Conscientiousness (i.e., achievement-striving, responsibility, orderliness) that pays off: For students with higher Conscientiousness the transition to VET is easier.
