This Seminar is designed to introduce students to the STATA statistical software package. We will provide a basic introduction on the use of STATA for statistical analysis (reading/cleaning data, generating summary statistics, estimating linear regression models, post-estimation commands, etc.). No previous knowledge of STATA or any other statistical software packages is required. Previous programming experience may be helpful, but is not necessary. All are welcome.

This session will be taught by Jill Furzer. She is a third year PhD student at the Institute of Health Policy, Management, and Evaluation at the University of Toronto and a CCHE Fellow. She holds a MA in Economics from the University of Toronto and received her BA Honours in Economics at the University of Alberta. Her dissertation is centred on child mental health disorders within educational settings.
