The aim of the course is to provide a more advanced knowledge of Stata 11 statistical software package. By the end of day 2, students should understand how to use Stata efficiently through using a greater range of commands, using looping structures for repetitive code, automatically formatting and saving output for tables.
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 6 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.
A one-day course on Stata Programming which builds on this course, is also available and runs immediately after this course.
Familiarity with Stata is a pre-requisite for this course. Please note this is NOT suitable as a conversion course for statisticians using other packages such as SAS or R.
Teaching on days 1 and 2 will make up a total of twelve hours, consisting of tutorials and practical sessions.
