This class will introduce common data management techniques in Stata. Topics covered include basic data manipulation commands such as: recoding variables, creating new variables, working with missing data, and generating variables based on complex selection criteria. Participants will be introduced to strategies for merging datasets (adding both variables and observations), and collapsing datasets.
Prerequisite: This workshop is intended for users who have an introductory level of knowledge of Stata software.
Note: MIT only: Athena login required.
