Basic Statistics with Stata 14

Location: Burwood Corporate Centre, Building BC, 2nd floor 
Date: Monday 7th August 2017
Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm

This full day workshop aims to cover the most commonly used basic Stata commands. Participants will be shown how to inspect data and produce basic statistics. The assumptions underlying each statistical methods will be explained and investigated. The course will also show how to collect results from the Stata output to use them later in an efficient manner. Health related dataset will be used as examples.

This is a hands on course with examples for you to try out during the course. Throughout the day there will be time to practice learned techniques and to ask questions. There will also be the option of progressing at your pace.

Topics will include:

  • Inspecting the data with graphs: boxplot, histogram, kernel density, etc.
  • Summary data commands
  • Estimation and hypothesis testing
  • One sample tests: t-test, signed rank test
  • Two sample tests: t-test, Mann-Whitney test
  • One-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA)
  • Correlation and simple linear regression
  • Two-way tables: Chi square test
  • Bootstrapping

Participants will be required to bring along a laptop with Stata 14.0 (or Stata 13.0) already installed.

The course assumes that participants have some basic familiarity with Stata commands.

Who should attend?
PhD students and early career researchers within the Faculty of Health. The day would suit people currently involved in, or about to start, postgraduate study and other researchers who wish to expand their quantitative research skills.

Presented by
Karl Keesman, B. Eng.
