Data Analysis Workshop I
Experience in using a statistical analysis package; 140.611-612; or equivalent experience
- Create, save and edit STATA datasets, log files and do files
- Use STATA to perform exploratory data analysis for continuous and dichotomous variables
- Use STATA do files to create reproducible analyses
- Explain the distinction between and appropriate uses of the binomial, Poisson and normal probability models
- Use STATA to perform paired and unpaired t-tests for differences in group means
- Describe the appropriate use of paired and unpaired t-tests and the interpretation of the resulting STATA output
- Use STATA to perform a chi-squared test and compute confidence intervals for differences in group proportions, relative risks and odds ratios
- Describe the appropriate use of chi-squared tests and the interpretation of the resulting STATA output
- Use STATA to visualize relationships between two continuous measures
- Use STATA to fit simple linear regression models, and interpret relevant estimates from the results
- 60% Lab Assignments and Quizzes
- 40% Final Project
Students must have a computer with Stata installed. This is a hybrid course with both an in-person section (140.613.11) and a synchronous online section (140.613.49). Please choose the modality you need (either in-person or online) when registering in SIS.
This is the virtual/online section of a course also held onsite.
