Short course: Advanced STATA- Programming and other techniques to make your life easier

Applications are now open for an exciting five-day course on Stata Programming organised by Emma Slaymaker and Milly Marston

Dates: Monday 7 November to Friday 11 November 2016

Cost: £1,250

The course is aimed at researchers and other professionals, from any discipline, who regularly use Stata for analysis but want to learn how to work more efficiently. It would be particularly suited to those who are about to embark on large analyses. We will cover a range of topics including:

  • Efficient ways of working using do files commands that allow you to manipulate data and to easily create new summary variables and datasets.
  • Stata’s commands for accessing and outputting results including putexcel to send results to Excel, a similar command to send output to Word documents and two simple commands to write text files and Stata datasets containing results.
  • Creating new commands (programs) for Stata.

The course ran has run since 2008 and has been a great success, with many attending the course because of a friend or colleague recommendation. Participants have consistently commented on the excellent teaching and feedback:

“I learnt so much in such a short time”

“I would recommend this course”

“This has saved me months of work”
