Data Wrangling with Stata (independent study)

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.

These office hours are designed to support anyone working through SSCC's Introduction to Stata and Data Wrangling in Stata independently. Bring questions, or learn from listening to the answers to others' questions. Requests to work through the exercises are especially welcome. It is expected that you'll read the course material and attempt the exercises ahead of time - this won't be a lecture format.

This is the suggested schedule. Questions about the week's suggested topics will get priority, but feel free to raise related questions where time allows.

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.
