Dear Statalisters,

this is a reminder that submissions for presentations on the German Stata Users Group Meeting is March 1, 2014. Please find detailed information about the meeting on

I also take the opportunity to announce the list, that a Workshop on the Visualization of Statisticval Data will be held in Hamburg on the day before the German Stata Users Group Meeting at 12/06/2014. Detailed information about the Workshop will be distributed with the final program of the meeting. A short description is given below my signature.

Many regards

Visualization of Statistical Data Using Stata

Visualization of statistical data can be very helpful, both for data analysis and for the presentation of the results of statistical analyses to a wider audience. In order to use graphs in a meaningful way, researcher must (1) pay attention to style rules for statistical graphs and (2) learn how to use Stata to create WYGIWYW-graphs (What You Get Is What You Want). The workshop discusses style rules for statistcal graphs in general, and introduces the combination of resultssets and -graph twoway- as the working horse to create arbitrary statistical graphs. Finally discusses several ways to present the results of regression models and particularly the use of -marginsplot-

Participants should have a basic unterstanding of Stata's graph command.


1 Design of statistical graphs
1.1 An introductory experiment
1.2 Towards a theory of graphical perception

2 Creating and changing graphs
2.1 -graph twoway-
2.2 Using -graph twoway- to plot -resultssets-

2 Plots for Regression Analysis
3.1 -margins-
3.2 Profile plots with -marginsplots-
3.3 Plotting coefficients


Ulrich Kohler is author of the textbook "Data Analysis Using Stata" and of several user written commands. He is also an organizer of the German Stata Users Group Meetings.
