Overview

This one-day, taking place in Cambridge, UK on 15 September 2015 course presents an introduction to Stata 13. The course will provide an immersion into programming and Stata. Formal computing language concepts will be presented. Exercises involving these constructs will be programmed by the participants. Special Stata programming and statistical features will be discussed and utilised.

The course is aimed at the scientist needing the programming and data management skills necessary to independently work with the advanced statistical tools available in Stata. It will prepare new Stata users for advanced courses. Topics to be covered include basic Stata commands, data management and linear regression models.

The course is designed for new or beginner-level users of Stata, especially those planning to attend the 3-day course, Microeconometrics using Stata: Nonlinear Models, also taking place in Cambridge between 16-18 September.

Agenda

The course provides a flexible and comprehensive introduction to Stata, the powerful, sophisticated and constantly evolving statistical software. Taking a “learning-by-doing” approach, it aims to turn novice users into confident ones employing plenty of examples and a constant stream of challenging exercises. Given Stata’s scope -- there are thousands of available commands -- the course concentrates on understanding basic syntax and deciphering Stata’s extensive and coherent (yet underrated) help files and documentation. Participants leave with the know-how and courage to independently solve their own statistical puzzles.

Since no two students have the same experience and individuals learn different subjects at different speeds, the course is highly flexible: the agenda emerges dynamically and depends on the group’s prior background and knowledge of Stata. By the end of the course, however, all participants will feel comfortable undertaking the following tasks:

  1. Opening, browsing, saving and importing datasets;
  2. Renaming, labelling, ordering and creating data;
  3. Summarising data;
  4. Creating basic tables and graphs;
  5. Automating tasks with do-files.

Having mastered the basics (and time permitting), the course then turns to more sophisticated topics. To ensure they match actual need, participants are encouraged to discuss their own real world data issues. Remaining time is spent introducing commands and concepts which resolve these problems, e.g., advanced data transformations, creating publication quality tables and basic looping structures.
