Stata Programming

when 24 October 2019 - 25 October 2019
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 (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.

In common with TStat’s course philosophy, each individual session is composed of both a theoretical component (in which the techniques are explained), and an applied (hands-on) segment, during which participants have the opportunity to implement the techniques using real data under the watchful eye of the course tutor. Throughout the course, theoretical sessions are reinforced by case study examples, in which the course tutor discusses and highlights potential pitfalls and the advantages of individual programming techniques.

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 (Stata programs).

Fee info

EUR 526: **To be eligible for student prices, participants must provide proof of their full-time student status for the current academic year.

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.

Course fees cover: course materials (handouts, Stata do files and datasets to used during the course), a temporary licence of Stata valid for 30 days from the beginning of the course, light lunch and coffee breaks.

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.
To maximize the usefulness of this course, we strongly recommend that participants bring their own laptops with them, to enable them to actively participate in the empirical sessions.
