Beginners or occasional users of Stata who want to progress to writing more efficient and reliable programs will benefit from this course. You will learn how to save time and avoid errors. We will also share tips and tricks to get your programs to check for various potential problems, so that it carries on working with new data and requires less maintenance. We also look at how these techniques are especially valuable when applied to "big data".
This is a web based training course, which is delivered and offers the same content as our public attendance classroom courses, with more convenience and without the travelling costs. Our web based courses are interactive but you attend at from a location of your choice, whether it is your home, office or remote location.
The course runs from 11.00 - 15.00 (BRST Time)
You will learn how to save time and avoid errors by writing bespoke commands for your own use, getting Stata to loop through your data for repetitive work, and including automated checks to keep Stata running smoothly.
By the end of the course, all participants will feel comfortable undertaking the following tasks:
- Automating repetitive and time-consuming tasks
- How to provide non-technical colleagues with a Stata analysis they can easily run
- Using Stata’s loop functions to save you time and work with big data
