Webinar: How to create basic Stata commands


Duration: 1 hour
Where: Join us from anywhere!
Cost: Free—but registrations are limited

Do you have routine tasks that you perform using Stata? Do you find yourself repeatedly writing similar sequences of Stata commands? If so, you can simplify your workflow and save time by writing a Stata command to automate these tasks.

Join Chuck Huber, Associate Director of Statistical Outreach, as he introduces the basics of creating custom Stata commands. In this webinar, you will first learn how to locate and access the results stored in Stata, how to handle conditions and branching, and how to use loops. Chuck will then demonstrate how to use these tools along with the program, args, and syntax commands to easily write your own Stata commands. These commands might be used for simple calculations, statistics derived from results of a fitted model, your own graphics, and much more.

How to join

The webinar is free, but you must register to attend. Registrations are limited so register soon.

We will send you an email prior to the start of the course with instructions on how to access the webinar.
