Automating analyses

Speaker:  Jonathan Sterne, St. Thomas' Hospital

Net Course 151 emphasizes that analyses should be reproducible. This means that all operations, from input and labeling of the raw data through merging and reshaping files to tabulations and modeling should be performed by a series of do files which can be completely rerun following, for example, correction of the data. Often, however, the results of tabulations and analyses are then laboriously typed into tables for reports and papers.

I will discuss how to use Stata to take the results of regression models and produce exactly the output needed for the tables of your next research paper.
