Abstract:

This Seminar is the first in a two-part introduction to the STATA statistical software package. In the first part, we will provide a basic introduction on the use of STATA for statistical analysis (reading/cleaning data, generating summary statistics, estimating linear regression models, post-estimation commands, etc.). The second part (scheduled for September 25th) will provide a hands-on workshop on the use of STATA with examples. No previous knowledge of STATA or any other statistical software packages is required. Previous programming experience may be helpful, but is not necessary. All are welcome.
