Migrating to Stata Painlessly!” is a reduced version of our “Up and Running in Stata” course. The course covers everything from the very basics, in order to get one up and running in Stata, through to an overview of the Stata commands available for preliminary data analysis, data management, importing and exporting data formats and the creation of graphs in Stata. In contrast to our standard introductory Stata however, it does not include specific applied Lab based exercises at the end of each individual session. Despite this, proficient users of other statistical software packages are able to replicate in real time the commands being illustrated by the course leader using the data bases provided at the beginning of the course.

PROGRAM:

  • SESSION I: INTRODUCTION GETTING STARTED
  • SESSION II: PRELIMINARY DATA ANALYSIS
  • SESSION III: DATA MANAGEMENT
  • SESSION IV: IMPORTING DATA FROM SPREADSHEETS
  • SESSION V: A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO STATA GRAPHICS 
  • A FEW TIPS AND TRICKS (Time Permitting)

PREREQUISITES:

Working knowledge of other statistical software packages such as R, SPSS o SAS, together with Familiarity with PCs and a working knowledge of English is also required.

COURSE LEADER: Dr. Una-Louise Bell

TARGET AUDIENCE:

This course has been specifically designed for researchers wishing to migrate to Stata from other statistical packages or simply needing to refresh their existing Stata skills. Experience has shown us that individuals without any previous experience of other statistical software packages are likely to find the course somewhat too intensive and would benefit far more from attending our “Up and Running in Stata”, which offers an applied exercise component at the end of each session during which participants have the opportunity to implement the concepts/techniques discussed in the sessions under the watchful eye of the course tutor.

COURSE DURATION:

The next edition of our Migrating to Stata Painlessly course will be offered ONLINE on a part-time basis from the 27th to the 28th May 2021 from 10.00 am to 1.30 pm Central European Time (CET).

COURSE STRUCTURE:

This course is, by it's very nature, to be considered very much an "applied training course”. Throughout the course, theoretical sessions are reinforced by practical examples, in which the course tutor discusses and highlights potential pitfalls and the advantages of individual commands/options or techniques.
