when 6 April 2020 - 7 April 2020
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 526

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. The course begins by reviewing some general Stata commands, illustrating how they can be combined with some powerful Stata programming constructs for looping and branching. During the two days, participants will be shown how to write, modify and develop do files (Stata programs).

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.

Course aim

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. The course begins by reviewing some general Stata commands, illustrating how they can be combined with some powerful Stata programming constructs for looping and branching. During the two days, participants will be shown how to write, modify and develop do files (user written Stata programs).

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. Enabling them, for example, to ultimately be in a position to automate the more repetitive tasks of data management, data analysis and data presentation in Stata.
