Automating Your Research in Stata: “A Little Bit of Programming Goes An Awfully Long Way!”

online course
when 1 October 2024 - 3 October 2024
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 710

This course aims to provide participants with the fundamental Stata programming toolkit in order to facilitate, automate, replicate and personalize both data analysis, management and presentation. As such, session 1 reviews some general Stata commands, illustrating how they can be combined with some powerful Stata programming constructs for looping and branching. The course then moves on to focus on how the programming concepts of Macros, Loops, and Branching, can be implemented to effectively write, modify and develop do files (user written Stata programs).



In common with TStat’s course philosophy, each session is composed of both a theoretical component (in which the programming techniques are fully explained via a series of course specific developed examples), and an applied (hands-on) segment, during which participants have the opportunity to implement the techniques under the watchful eye of the course tutor.



At the end of the course, it is expected that participants are able to personalize existing Stata commands and develop their own do files in order to organize their workload in a more automated, efficient, flexible and reproducible manner.

Target group

Researchers or professionals with previous programming skills in other software wishing to work effectively in Stata. Existing Stata users wishing to acquire the “standard” Stata programming toolkit in order to implement basic programming techniques to effectively automate a substantial part of their empirical data analysis.

*To be eligible for full-time student prices, participants must provide proof of their full-time student status for the current academic year. Our standard policy is to provide all full-time students, be they Undergraduates or Masters, access to our student registration rates. Part-time master and doctoral students on the other hand, who are also currently employed will however, be assigned the standard academic registration fee.



Fees are subject to VAT (applied at the current Italian rate of 22%). Under current EU fiscal regulations, VAT will not however applied to companies, Institutions or Universities providing a valid tax registration number.



The number of participants is limited to 8. Places will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis. The course will be officially confirmed, when at least 5 individuals are enrolled.



Course fees cover: teaching materials (handouts, Stata do files, program templates and datasets to use during the course), a temporary course licence of Stata valid for 30 days from the beginning of the course.



Individuals interested in attending the training course, must return their completed registration forms to TStat by the 9th June 2024.
