Stata is a complete statistical software package for data management and statistical data analysis. Results from its analysis can easily be presented in both tables and graphs. It comprises a collection of data functions that range from simple to advanced application. The software is very popular with data manipulation, cross sectional data analysis, panel data analysis, forecasting, time series analysis, survival analysis, longitudinal survey methods, structural equation modeling and simulations. The software can be used via a graphical user interface (where users interact with menus, icons and dialog boxes) or a command-line interface (using its very intuitive programming language). The software is supported by a very active user community that not only offer dedicated support but also develop new packages that continuously improves the software capabilities. This five days course is designed to enhance participants abilities of using the software. By the end of the training sessions, participants would become intermediate and advanced level users of the software.


5 Days


By the end of the training, you will be able to:

Understand both descriptive and inferential statistics

Understand various data collection techniques and data processing methods and use mobile phones for data collection(Open data Kit)

Use important functionalities in Stata that relate to data manipulation and management.

Create and manipulate graphs and figures in Stata

Use Stata effectively for analyzing quantitative data descriptively.

Use Stata effectively for analyzing quantitative data using inferential statistics.

Keep records of your work and create reproducible analyses.

Export the results of analyses into word processing programs such as Microsoft Word.
