Teaching Stata—Some reflections after 8 years of training experiences


  • Karen Robson

    () (York University)


This presentation focuses on the author’s 8 years of experience teaching Stata to international audiences—primarily at the Essex Summer School in Social Science Data Analysis and Collection in the United Kingdom, but also in the World Bank funded statistical capacity-building initiatives in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Albania. The author has recently co-authored (with David Pevalin) The Stata Survival Manual, published by Open University/McGraw Hill. The author will focus on common student questions and some approaches she has used to assist students in learning the software.
