Webinar: Tables of descriptive statistics


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


Do you need a Table 1 of descriptive statistics for your publication? Are you still manually typing the numbers into a table or writing long code to create it? Do you want to automatically generate and export such a table for your data using just one line of code?

Stata 18 introduced the dtable command for easily creating, customizing, and exporting tables of descriptive statistics in one step. In this webinar, we demonstrate how to use it to create and export tables of descriptive statistics in both regular data and svy data, including those that display statistics by group, test for differences across groups, and more. We will also demonstrate how to customize the statistics, formatting, and style using dtable's own options and the collect suite of commands. Finally, we will show you how to include these tables in complete reports.

Join us for this one-hour webinar and learn how you can make your interactions with Stata more efficient and more effective.

How to join

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