Course aims and objectives

The aim of this course is to provide a more advanced knowledge of Stata 13 statistical software package. By the end of day 3 participants should understand how to use Stata efficiently through using a greater range of commands, using looping structures for repetitive code, and automatically formatting and saving output for tables.

Participants should have a working knowledge of basic statistics such as linear regression. However, the course is focussed on data management and programming skills rather than statistical content.
