TStat Training’s more advanced programming course provides participants with the programming commands and options required to autonomously develop and modify Stata ADO files. As such the course illustrates the most effective way to develop a Stata ADO file, introducing participants to more specific programming concepts (such as arguments, local subroutines and the temporary storing of results), Stata’s programming commands tokenizemacro shift, marksample, markout “byable”, sortpreserve and Stata’s inbuilt matrix capabilities, before bringing it all together in the final session to show participants how to develop their own programs for linear and maximum likelihood estimators.

In common with TStat’s course philosophy, each session is composed of both a theoretical component (in which the programming techniques are fully explained via a series of course specific developed examples), and an applied (hands-on) segment, during which participants have the opportunity to implement the techniques under the watchful eye of the course tutor.

Program: 

               Session I: Programming Basics - A Quick Review

               Session II: Writing Stata Programs

               Session III: Stata Matrix Capabilities

                Session IV: Programming Estimators

A more detailed program outline is just a click away!

Prerequisites:

It is assumed that participants have a sound working knowledge of Stata and are familiar with the concepts and Stata commands treated in our introductory Stata Programming course: A Little bit of Programming goes an Awfully Long Way..

Target Audience:

Researchers or professionals with a good knowledge of the introductory programming skills covered on our A Little bit of Programming goes an Awfully Long Way.. wising to take their Programming skills to the next level in order to be able to program their only Stata ADO files for data analysis and data management and to develop develop Stata commands for least squares and maximum-likelihood estimators.

Course Duration:

This training course will be offered ONLINE on a part-time basis on the 26th and 29th - 30th of March 2021 from 10.00 am to 1.30 pm Central European Time (CET).

Course Objectives:

At the end of the course, it is expected that participants will be able to independently implement both the techniques learnt and personalize the ADO program templates specifically developed during the course in order to enhance the effectiveness of their research.
