Stata for Researchers

Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all SSCC training will be offered online. Additional details and course links will be provided after registration.

Stata is the most popular statistical software at the SSCC, as it is both very powerful and relatively easy to learn. This class will teach you the fundamentals of Stata and give you a strong foundation you can build on to become an expert Stata user. We spend a good bit of time on Stata's underlying structure and logic so you'll come away with the ability to get Stata to do whatever you need it to do, not just run the commands we cover. We'll also talk about real-world issues like handling missing data and checking for errors, as well as good workflow and research computing practices.

You do not need any experience with Stata to benefit from this workshop, but people who learned how to run a few Stata commands for a class or who figured out some things on their own will benefit from its broader and more rigorous approach. The material covered is also available in the SSCC Knowledge Base under Stata for Researchers.

Note that the April section will meet in 2290 Grainger Hall, not the Sewell Social Sciences Building, and the 4/5 session will start at 2:15 rather than 4:00 and end at 6:15, and be held in 2294 Grainger Hall.

Each session of this class builds on the material taught in the previous sessions. If you cannot attend all of the class's sessions but still want to take the class, you must contact the Help Desk, find out what will be covered in the session(s) you will miss, and learn that material on your own before the next session. In most cases the material can be found in the SSCC Knowledge Base.
