About this course

Stata is arguably the best software for data  management and statistical analysis. It is a fast, powerful statistical package designed for researchers of all disciplines. Stata is a complete, integrated statistical package that provides everything for data analysis from data management to basic analysis and advanced analysis.

Stata makes it easy to generate publication-quality, distinctly styled graphs, including descriptive graphs, regression fit graphs, etc. With the integrated Graph Editor you click to change anything about your graph or to add titles, notes, lines, arrows, and text. You can also choose between existing graph styles or create your own.

Stata is distributed in more than 150 countries and is used by professionals in many fields of research. A free 30-day teaching license will be given to each participant at this course.

The course objectives include helping participants achieve the understanding of descriptive and  inferential statistics; be able to summarise and present data collected in their settings; and be able to make inferences from data using Stata. The course will teach participants the following:
