Course Content

to use Stata.

This course is intended for Stata users who wish to learn about key programming topics such as macro processing, program flow of control, using ado-files, programming ado-files, Monte-Carlo simulation and bootstrapped standard errors.

Become an expert in organizing your work in Stata. Make the most of Stata’s scripting language to improve your workflow and create concretely reproducible analyses. Learn how branching, looping, flow of control, and accessing saved estimation results can speed up your work and lead to more complete analyses. Learn about bootstrapping and Monte Carlo simulations, too.

Course Content

An advanced, seven-week course that teaches how to add new commands to Stata, for those who understand the basics of Stata programming.

This course covers advanced issues of programming in the Stata language focusing on writing commands for general use.

Learn how to create and debug your own commands that are indistinguishable from the commands in Stata. You will be able to parse both standard and nonstandard Stata syntax using the intuitive syntax command, to manage and process saved results, to post your own saved results, to process by-groups, to create data management commands, to program your own maximum-likelihood estimator, and more. In short, learn to create commands that act just like the commands that ship with Stata.

Requirements: Must have access to Stata 15 (licence number to be quoted on order form) and a basic knowledge of how to use Stata.

Prerequisites:

  • Course content of NetCourse 151 or equivalent knowledge
  • Stata 15 installed and working
