Advanced Stata short course

Advanced STATA: Programming and other techniques to make your life easier.  A five day course from the Population Studies Group, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.


Date: Monday 5th November  to Friday 9th November 2018

Cost: £1385

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 has run since 2008 and has been a great success. Participants have consistently commented on the excellent teaching and feedback includes  “I learnt so much in such a short time”,  “I would recommend this course” and “This has saved me months of work”.   Each year we find that many people have had the course recommended by a friend or colleague.
