Using Stata Effectively: Data Management, Analysis, and Graphics Fundamentals
Presented by Bill Rising, StataCorp's Director of Educational Services
Become intimately familiar with all three components of Stata: data management, analysis, and graphics. This course is aimed at both new Stata users and those who wish to learn techniques for efficient day-to-day use of Stata. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to use Stata efficiently for basic analyses and graphics. You will be able to do this in a reproducible manner, making collaborative changes and follow-up analyses much simpler. Finally, you will be able to make your datasets self-explanatory to your co-workers and yourself when using them in the future.
