Stata is one of the leading statistical software packages. Most of its users work in research, especially in the fields of economics, sociology, political science, biomedicine and epidemiology.  The Social Science Data Services at Government Information department designs this "Stata 1 2 3" workshop series to introduce the basics as well as advanced uses of the application. Meanwhile, several primary social science data resources will also be presented.

In the second workshop, the International Perspective, you will use several well-known international data, including World Development Indicators and Cross National Time Series, in Stata to develop your own international scope. You will learn how to use Stata 11 to:

  1. Load in a data file in SPSS format and complex Excel format.
  2. Merge data files together and check the integrity.
  3. Run regression and visualize the result by scatter plot graphs.

We will also include more advanced tricks in Stata programming (the *.do files), and several advanced statistical methods (logistic regression, time series analysis) if time permits. At the end of the workshop, we will introduce several international data resources.
