One and a half days building on Stata I to cover data cleaning and basic data analysis.

This course is a step up from the Stata I course.  It is designed for people who have completed our Stata I course or feel confident using basic commands in Stata, and creating log-files and do-files. The focus of the course is on learning to apply Stata in statistical analysis rather than being a statistics course. Therefore, participants are expected to have a basic knowledge of statistics, at least at the level of our Introduction to Biostatistics course.
