This is an introductory course to Stata. The course assumed to previous knowledge of the software nor any statistical knowledge. The course does not teach statistics. The goal of the course is to teach students about the basic functionality of Stata and how it can be used to analyze large data sets. The course contains two projects for students to work on. It also provides a step-by-step approach in covering all of the material where I go through the commands one by one. In addition to the video lectures, I have included the scripts of the lectures so that students can also study and revise the material without having to watch videos. Although Stata comes with many data sets, this course utilizes my own data sets in order to explain to students the thought process involved in collecting data.
Who this course is for:
- Beginner data scientists looking to learn how to use Stata
