The Introduction to Stata workshop is divided in four two-hour sessions and is designed to get you familiar with Stata. During the sessions, we will use datasets with global economic and development indicators. This workshop series is suitable for those who have not worked with Stata before or those seeking a refresher session. It is designed to progressively build knowledge, so it is essential to attend all sessions. By the end of the workshop series, you will be able to perform intermediate data analysis tasks.
