Handling Large-Scale Unit Level Data Using STATA

Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee and NPTEL via Swayam


The primary objective of this module is to enable learners in handling various large-scale complex database for detailed analysis. The latest statistical software like STATA will be employed in explaining these concepts as stated in the module. This will be practically oriented. The module covers the topics from basics of data, their collection, tabulation and analysis. The data analysis will be performed on various real life data (both quantitative and qualitative) which is crucial to any research. Topics include familiarization with unit-level data, collection, prerequisites, descriptive and inferential statistics, analysis of data using STATA, analysis of qualitative variables, and handling longitudinal (panel) data, etc.
