Workshop: Advanced Do-File programming and introduction to Ado-file programs
The workshop covers two types of Stata programming: do-file programming and ado file programming. It starts by presenting programming tools such as local macros, extended macro functions, inline macro expansion, loops, and branches and gives examples of their use in everyday data analysis. The second part of the course explains the nuts and bolts of defining a "program" in Stata. Finally, the course provides a step-by-step tutorial for implementing a user-written command into Stata ("Ado-File").
Participants should be already familiar with Stata. They should know how to start a do-file from the command line. Moreover, command of the data-manipulation tools generate and replace, basic data-analysis tools such as tabulate, summarize, and regress, and some experience with graph are absolutely necessary prerequisites.
Ulrich Kohler holds the chair for Methods of Empirical Social Research at the University of Potsdam. He is coauthor of Data Analysis Using Stata and author of several user-written Stata commands.
