I have a the materials for an introductory course online that you
might find useful.

Start Stata on an internet connected computer and from the command
line enter: net from

Then click on the link "SOCY498C" (Support material for
SOCY498C/699C).  You should see:

PACKAGES you could -net describe-:
    read              Reading Data.
    examine           Examining Data.
    graphing          Graphing Data.
    regression        Regression Analysis.
    gotchas           Things that can go wrong.
    by-egen           by and egen language.
    macros            Macros.
    merge             Appending and merging data files.
    adjust            Using the post-estimation command adjust.

Just click on a link to download a pdf file with worked examples and
accompanying Stata do files.

One caution, because, I think, I store these files on a Unix based
computer there is an issue if you try to "re-click" on a link (e.g.
SOCY498C) and you need to reissue the -net from- command.  Because of
that I assign this command to a function key using a global macro.
Here is what I use:

global F7 net from;
