Course Agenda

The course provides a comprehensive introduction to Stata, the powerful, sophisticated and constantly evolving statistical software. Taking a “learning-by-doing” approach, we aim 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.

The course is intentionally flexible. The agenda emerges dynamically and depends on the group’s prior background and knowledge of Stata. By the end of the course, all participants will feel comfortable undertaking the following tasks:

  • Opening, browsing, saving and importing datasets
  • Renaming, labelling, ordering and creating variables
  • Listing data and basic command syntax
  • Creating basic tables and graphs
  • Saving and printing output with log files
  • Automating tasks with do-files

The course runs from 13.00 - 17.00 (GMT)
