Description
-----------

The workshop introduces participants into use Stata for data management
tasks, both basic and advanced. It is targeted at participants with
limited knowledge of Stata and at those who use Stata for estimation but
manage and clean their data in other software.

The workshop starts with demonstrating ways of importing various data
formats into Stata. Subsequently we will discuss data cleaning and
various special problems of data management, including data management
in datasets with hierarchical structures. Each topic is illustrated with
practical examples and applied in assisted exercises using participant
data or from real-life settings.
