Introduction to Stata

17 June 2020, 2-3pm | ONLINE WEBINAR
This webinar is intended as an introduction to using STATA for quantitative anaylsis and will cover core functionality for new users.

What is Stata?

Stata is an integrated statistical package which includes tools for data analysis, data management and presentation. The ability to import data from a variety of sources, built-in spreadsheet functionality and publication-quality graphical outputs make Stata a powerful, flexible tool, and a popular choice of software for quantitative analysis at many research institutions.

Vian Rajabzadeh, a Doctoral Researcher for the NIHR Global Health Research Group on Developing Pyscho-Social Interventions, will be giving a live practical demonstration of the available functionality and will discuss the advantages of using Stata over other software packages.

Who is this webinar for and what will you learn?

This webinar is aimed at health and social care professionals and researchers, and is intended as an introduction to using Stata for quantitative analysis.
