Dear Statalisters,

StataCorp is excited to announce two sessions of the public training
course, "Using Stata Effectively: Data Management, Analysis, and
Graphics  Fundamentals," to be held in New York City and San
Francisco. Public training courses are intensive, in-depth courses
taught by StataCorp at third-party sites around the country. They are
open to individuals and groups.

The training in New York will be on August 21 and 22. The training in
San Francisco will be on September 25 and 26. Each session has
enrollment limited to 24 people.

The course taught at each of the sessios will allow participants to
become intimately familiar with all three components of Stata: data
management, analysis, and graphics. The two-day course is aimed at
both new Stata users and those who would like to pick up tips for
efficient day-to-day usage of Stata.

Course topics

Stata basics
 o  Keeping organized
 o  Knowing how Stata treats data
 o  Using dialog boxes efficiently
 o  Using the Command window
 o  Saving time and effort while working

Data management
 o  Reading in datasets of various standard formats (such as those
    from spreadsheets or databases)
 o  Labeling variables and setting up encoded variables
 o  Generating new variables in an efficient fashion, including
    leading, lagging, generating statistics within groups, and working
    across variables
 o  Combining datasets by adding observations and by adding variables
 o  Reshaping datasets for repeated measurements

Workflow
 o  Using both menus and the Command window to work quickly
 o  Setting up Stata to one's liking
 o  Keeping complete records of what is done inside Stata
 o  Creating reproducible analyses, which are completely documented
 o  Finding, installing, and removing user-written extensions to Stata
 o  Customizing how Stata starts up and where it looks for files

Analysis
 o  Using basic statistical commands
 o  Reusing results of Stata commands, both estimation and other
 o  Using common postestimation commands, such as testing hypotheses
    about linear or nonlinear combinations of coefficients, generating
    fitted values, or looking at marginal effects

Graphics
 o  Making common, simple graphs
 o  Building up complex graphs
 o  Using the Graph Editor

The above lists are not exhaustive. They are meant to give an idea of
the level and scope of each topic.

Prerequisites
 o  Basic computer skills
 o  The course is taught using Stata 10. It is appropriate for those
    who already own Stata 10 and for those who are considering
    purchasing or upgrading to Stata 10. There is no requirement that
    the user already own a Stata license.
