Using Stata Effectively: Data Management, Analysis, and Graphics Fundamentals
Become intimately familiar with all three components of Stata: data
management, analysis, and graphics. This two-day 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.
