Stata is a statistics software broadly used for social analysis. This workshop provides a basic toolkit to create graphs in Stata. In this two-hour workshop, we will create six different visualizations in Stata. Once people feel comfortable creating different visualizations, we will begin to personalize them, first using the “scheme” options and then changing manually the fonts and colors. Finally the attendants will learn how to use some other options to overlap and combine graphs. At the end of the workshop, the participants will be able to create and personalize graphs in Stata.

Please note that the course will use Stata for PC. A few commands and functionalities differ in Stata for Mac, but Mac users are also encouraged to attend the workshop.

Previous statistical analysis in Stata is not required, but familiarity with the environment is highly preferred.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Plot histograms, scatters, line, bar and dot graphs
  • Present information in a map
  • Change the font, colors and look of their graphs
