STATA: An Introduction

1 day

This is a full-day workshop on the Stata statistical package, providing training to researchers undertaking quantitative empirical social science research. Stata offers a great deal more than standard packages (such as SPSS) in the variety of statistical tests it can perform and in data management capabilities; it is also easily programmable, providing highly efficient ways to perform repetitive tasks. It is used by many leading researchers in the social sciences and there is excellent technical support available from web-based user groups and from Stata technical support staff.

The session will assume no prior knowledge of Stata.
