Introduction to STATA

Course description:
Stata is a powerful and versatile statistical analysis software. It is an ideal tool to do basic as well as advanced statistical analyses.

This two days course is intended for beginners. Note that this course is specifically about using Stata rather than explaining statistical concepts or methods. 

The course aims at giving you an introduction to using Stata. You will use it for data-management and simple descriptive and statistical analyses of data.

The second day you will learn about the data-management tools of Stata and you will get the opportunity to receive help resolving Stata related problems with your own data.
