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.

Who the course is intended for

It is assumed that participants will have attended the Introduction to Stata course (or be familiar with the contents of this course) AND have used Stata for at least six months. 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.
