This class will introduce common data management techniques in Stata. Topics covered include basic data manipulation commands such as: recoding variables, creating new variables, working with missing data, and generating variables based on complex selection criteria. Participants will be introduced to strategies for merging datasets (adding both variables and observations), and collapsing datasets. This workshop is intended for users who have an introductory level of knowledge of Stata software.
This hands-on class will provide a comprehensive introduction to graphics in Stata. Topics for the class include graphing principles, descriptive graphs, linear regression, factor variables, and post-estimation graphs. This is an introductory workshop appropriate for those with only basic familiarity with Stata. Prerequisite: a general familiarity with Stata (such as taking the Introduction to Stata workshop).
