Web based: Using Stata Effectively: Data Management, Analysis, and Graphics Fundamentals

Become intimately familiar with all three components of Stata: data management, analysis, and graphics. This course is aimed at both new Stata users and those who wish to learn techniques for efficient day-to-day use of Stata. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to use Stata efficiently for basic analyses and graphics. You will be able to do this in a reproducible manner, making collaborative changes and follow-up analyses much simpler. Finally, you will be able to make your datasets self-explanatory to your co-workers and yourself when using them in the future.

Course topics

Stata basics

  • Keeping organized
  • Knowing how Stata treats data
  • Using dialogue boxes efficiently
  • Using the Command window
  • Saving time and effort while working

Data management

  • Reading in datasets of various standard formats, such as those from spreadsheets or databases
  • Labelling variables and setting up encoded variables
  • Generating new variables in an efficient fashion, including leading, lagging, generating statistics within groups, and working across variables
  • Combining datasets by adding observations and by adding variables
  • Reshaping datasets for repeated measurements


  • Using menus and the Command window to work quickly
  • Setting up Stata to one’s liking
  • Keeping complete records of what is done inside Stata
  • Creating reproducible analyses, which are completely documented
  • Finding, installing, and removing community-contributed extensions to Stata
  • Customizing how Stata starts up and where it looks for files


  • Using basic statistical commands
  • Reusing results of Stata commands
  • Using common post-estimation commands, such as those that test hypotheses about linear or nonlinear combinations of coefficients, generate fitted values, or look at marginal effects
  • Working with interactions and factor variables


  • Making common, simple graphs
  • Building up complex graphs
  • Using the Graph Editor

The above lists are not exhaustive. They are meant to give an idea of the level and scope of each topic.


  • Basic computer skills
  • The course is taught using Stata. It is appropriate for those who already own Stata and for those who are considering purchasing or upgrading. There is no requirement that the user already owns a Stata license. 10:00 AM CT (Central Time, USA) = 5 PM CEST (Central European Summer Time)
