The aim of this course is to introduce students to relational databases and how to explore them using Stata and SAS. Students will use Stata and SAS to import, check, inspect and manipulate data, including appending, merging, using dates, transposing longitudinal data; develop fundamental programming skills for efficient and reproducible use of these packages, including loops, arguments and programs/macros; and implement data display and summary presentations, including advanced graphics to produce publication-quality graphs.
