DSD: Getting Started with Stata - Part 1 (Orientation and materials)
Course Description:

This blended learning course is designed to help you to use Stata to import, manipulate, describe and analyse categorical and continuous data, and to produce plots and tables to support analysis.

There will be four online tutorials designed to be taken in sequence, one an introduction to the course and three specialist tutorials. This course is Part 1 of the series. This course involves
  • around four hours of online, video-based learning
  • directed reading on selected web sites
  • a number of exercise sheets linked to the video material
  • an online workshop to consolidate your learning

To benefit fully from the course you should complete all of these elements.

Once you have booked on the course you will be able to access all of the online materials in our Digital Skills Development Moodle course. These include a short introduction video that explains how the course is delivered.

PREREQUISITES: You should have a good understanding of statistical concepts. No prior experience with Stata is required, but experience using a spreadsheet application such as Excel would be an advantage.
