  • There is no specific requirement other than having pre-installed the software in your computer. This is a step-by-step course that takes you by the hand and shows you all you need to know to be able to work efficiently and effectively in Stata, presenting you the most important functions as well as practice with example datasets to help you become a proficient user of Stata.

This course aims to give newbies and first-time users an introductory yet detailed overview of Stata's core features and capabilities and provide its students with plenty of hands-on experience on the best practices for writing reproducible routines (using do-files), organizing data analysis projects, understanding command syntax, inputting and outputting data and managing datasets in Stata.

No matter if you are an undergraduate student who has just started using Stata, a graduate student who needs to have solid knowledge of the software's fundamental tools and capabilities or an experienced researcher who wants to use Stata to analyze your data, this course will take you by the hand and provide you with practical exercises (and answers) to lay a solid foundation and help you become a proficient user of Stata.

Who is the target audience?
  • If you have never used Stata or have little experience with the software, this course is for your. If you are acquainted with it and want deeper knowledge, this course is probably not for you, even though I provide valuable insights for users all of all levels of expertise in Stata.

Empreendedor e professor

Professor, empreendedor, e apaixonado por idiomas, viagens e cultura, educação e tecnologia, tenho vasta experiência com ensino, tradução, e pesquisa acadêmica. Sou certificado em ensino de inglês para adultos pela Cambridge University desde 2005, e já atuei como professor em cursos de inglês e em minha própria empresa, prestando serviços de coaching linguístico para executivos e traduções de material técnico.

Sou mestre em Economia pela UFBA (2014) e em Economia e Finanças pela Barcelona Graduate School of Economics (2015). Além disso, trabalhei com pesquisa quantitativa no setor de Petróleo e Gás Natural, fiz diversos cursos na área em universidades de prestígio mundial, como Harvard University e University of Texas, e participei e apresentei trabalhos em eventos acadêmicos e profissionais em diversos países, como Rússia, Uruguai, e Portugal, além do Brasil.

Cresci ouvindo que se houvesse forma de aprender sem estudar, algum japonês já a teria inventado (rs). Por isso, acredito que a melhor forma de aprender qualquer coisa é com muito estudo e dedicação, mas que o apoio próximo de um profissional qualificado e experiente é essencial para fazer isso da maneira mais eficiente possível. E é exatamente esse tipo de referência que eu busco oferecer para os meus alunos e clientes.
