This session covers manipulating and restructuring data in one or more related data sets and introduces loops.
Software:

Computer workstations with Stata installed are available for in-person tutorials in Bobst 617. For remote tutorials, while some patrons decide to approach tutorials as a demonstration of the software, other patrons approach tutorials with a more “hands-on” approach and wish to interact with the software during the tutorial. If the latter is the case, we recommend referencing our supported software page for additional information on accessing/downloading the software prior to the tutorial.

Duration: 90 min

Room description:

As our global pandemic continues, some tutorials are held remotely and require NYU sign on to access, while others are held in person, without a remote component. Please note the correct modality and location of the tutorial when registering
