We are excited to continue EARNConversations again this year and provide a week-long series of virtual discussions that lift up state and local policy research from across the Network and provide you with the ideas and resources you need to better advocate for racial, gender, and economic justice.
This is a pivotal moment during which we have an opportunity to make transformative investments in our communities and reforms to the standards and supports that for too long have left many working people struggling to get by. EARNConversations will bring together researchers, advocates, and grassroots organizers to strategize how states and localities can act on the lessons of the past year and use an unprecedented supply of resources to build worker power and improve the well-being of working families.
Data Bootcamp: Next Steps in Stata
October 1 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Attendees will learn how to effectively use Stata to answer a research question using microdata.
The lesson will build on concepts learned in First steps in Stata, and attendees who don’t join that session should already have familiarity with concepts learned there.
Learning outcomes include:
1. Writing do-files in Stata using best practices and proper documentation
2. How to properly set up a project: directory structure and working directories
3. Intermediate Stata operations: joining datasets, transforming data, macros, loops, exporting data, pooling data
