 Prerequisite:
Basic knowledge of Stata syntax and commands, or strong familiarity with another statistical programming language (e.g. R, SAS)
 Description:

Teaches Stata programming in a systematic way to students who have had exposure to Stata or another statistical package, but may not have the tools to perform complex analytical projects independently. Covers data management, programming concepts, procedural programming, Stataspecific commands and constructs, and project workflow.
 Learning Objectives:

Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:
 Demonstrate Stata commands that are necessary for analysis, but that students may not encounter in the core biostatistics/epidemiology series: reshape, collapse, encode, insheet; variable formats (strings, ints, floats, dates); factor variables; advanced graphing
 Produce Stata programming to make work more efficient and less errorprone: loops; macros, .ado files; text file output; automating table/figure generation
 Create project workflow so that data are not lost and results are reproducible: logging, commenting, versioning, file organization
