Learning Stata

There is a large number of learning materials on Stata available on the internet. Some of the best ones that we have found are listed below.

The best place to start if you have never used Stata or another statistical package before is probably the SALDRU Stata Web Course. This online tutorial forms the backbone of the yearly course presented by SALDRU in partnership with the University of Michigan and is aimed at beginners. It focuses mainly on the mechanics of survey data analysis using Stata, rather than the underlying statistical and econometric theory. It uses the National Income Dynamics Study (NIDS) dataset for its examples.
