Module 2: Stata Basics - Working with Complex Survey Data and Descriptive Statistics


This optional, asynchronous, self-paced self-tutorial covers the basics of working with complex survey data in Stata (e.g., aggregating and merging data files, and creating and labeling new variables) and how to create tables and graphs as well as do basic descriptive statistics in the program. 


This self-tutorial is intended as an introduction or refresher for researchers that will be using Stata in their research projects. The self-tutorial aims to familiarize users with:

  • Working with complex survey data in Stata
  • How to create basic tables, graphs, and descriptive statistics in Stata

The overall goal is for researchers to then apply these tools (as appropriate) in their research projects.
