The course introduces students to the logic and the strategies for visualizing data in Stata. Among the topics, the course will explore the issues in the choice of the most appropriate graphic (distributional, compositional or correlational) for different data and aims, and tips and tricks to prepare data for different graphical schemes. In particular, the power and flexibility of multiple "layers" in twoway Stata panels will be exploited. By the end of this one-day course, students will be able to produce Stata Graphs, and export them to JPG, TIFF or PDF formats for further applications.
