Mediterranean Stata Summer School

when 11 July 2016 - 13 July 2016
language English
duration 1 week

“A little bit of Stata Programming goes an awfully long way”…. The underlying objective of this summer school is to illustrate the ways in which some very basic programming tools can be easily implemented in Stata in order to facilitate, automate, replicate and personalize both data analysis/management and data presentation. To this end participants are provided with a core set of programming tools and techniques, that are prerequisites for a more effective, time saving use of the software.

During the course of the summer school, participants will be shown how to write, modify and develop do files (Stata programs). At the end of the three days, it is expected that participants are able to personalize existing Stata commands and develop their own do files in order to organize their workload in a more automated, flexible, reproducible manner. This would allow them, for example, to ultimately be in a position to delegate the more repetitive tasks of data management, data analysis and data presentation in Stata.

Course leader

Professor of Economics and Social Work Boston College

Target group

This course will prove invaluable to both researchers and professionals across a wide spectrum of fields (Biostatistics, Economics, Epidemiology, Political and Social Sciences, Public Health), wishing to progress to a more advanced, efficient and automated use of Stata.

Course aim

In common with TStat’s workshop philosophy, each individual session is composed of both a theoretical component (in which the techniques and underlying principles behind them are explained), and an applied (hands-on) segment, during which participants have the opportunity to implement the techniques using real data under the watchful eye of the course tutor. Throughout the summer school, theoretical sessions are reinforced by case study examples, in which the course tutor discusses and highlights potential pitfalls and the advantages of individual techniques.
