Workshop: Applied Data Management Using Stata
This workshop covers how to use Stata for data management tasks, both basic and advanced. It is targeted to participants with limited knowledge of Stata and to those who use Stata for estimating models but do the data management in other sofware.
We'll start the workshop with various ways to input data into Stata. We then discuss data cleaning and various special problems of data manangement, including data management in datasets with hierarchical structures. Each topic will be illustrated with examples and deepened with practical exercises.
