Course Description:

This course provides an introduction to electronic data management and statistical analysis. While Stata is used as an example of a data analysis and management program, the course covers general principles of electronic data management and analysis which the student can transfer to other management and analysis programs. The course includes a combination of lectures and extensive applied lab experiences using Stata with faculty support available if required. The course educates the student both in graphical user interface approach to electronic data management and analysis, and in the writing, debugging and saving Stata programs. While the course demonstrates how to perform various statistical analyses it does not serve as a Biostatistics course.
