Stata 3: US Artists before the Recession

Keywords: Stata, ASCII, dictionary file, collapse, statistics data file.

In the third workshop, US Artists before the Recession, you will use the Artists Extracted File from American Community Survey 2004-2006 to analyze the status of this occupation in the time period just before recession. You will learn how to use Stata 11 to:

  1. Load in a data file in ASCII format and build your dictionary file.
  2. Generate a new statistics data file from original micro-level survey.

This workshop will not introduce advanced statistical concepts, but will greatly expand your Stata programming skills. At the end of the workshop, we will introduce additional visualization involving geographic indicators (for more details of the technique, please check theGIS workshop schedule).
