STATA Part 2: Helpful Tips
Wednesday 10 April, 10am to 4pm, Burwood Corporate Centre
This full day workshop aims to introduce participants to more advanced Stata commands. In this hands-on workshop, using health related datasets, participants will build on the Stata commands learnt in the Stata Part 1 workshop, and learn how to use Stata more efficiently. This course will focus on how to use Stata to
- Use functions to make data management easier.
- Join datasets together.
- Repeat commands using loops.
- Reshape longitudinal data.
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.
Participants will be required to bring along a laptop with Stata 15 already installed. If you do not have Stata installed on your laptop or are not familiar with accessing Stata on demand please indicate when you enrol on the workshop. If you need help to access Stata on demand, please come 30 minutes earlier to the workshop and you will be shown how to gain access to Stata on demand.
The course assumes that you have attended the Stata Part 1 workshop or have some familiarity with Stata.
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.
