In my forays into Youtube for help on a command earlier this month, I stumbled across a great set of videos for working with data in Stata. The videos are done by Alan Neustadtl, who teaches the class “Statistical Programming Using Stata” at the University of Maryland. He uses data from the General Social Survey to walk through the steps of examining the data, creating/recoding variables, and cleaning data.
Examining a Dataset and Creating and Recoding Variables
Creating New Variables Using Stata
Cleaning Data in Stata
Creating Additive Indices Using Stata
The videos are shortish- like 15-30 minutes for each. They could be a great tool for faculty members who are working with grad students on projects, but don’t have time to sit down and walk them through the basics using Stata.
