Data Visualization Using Stata – Code Horizons Seminar
Understanding data and effectively presenting model results are challenges that data analysts face most every day. There is seldom a more effective solution than a well thought out visualization. Problems in the data are easily identified; complex effects are quickly summarized; effect sizes and variability are immediately clear. In this seminar, we will cover best practices for accurately representing data as well as many specific approaches to data exploration, model diagnostics, and model presentation.
The primary focus is on the applied analyst’s “bread and butter” types of visualizations: those I suspect will be useful in most every research project. However, we also cover more advanced visualization methods.
Topics covered range from exploratory data analysis techniques to methods for presenting complex model results. Applied exercises will help participants implement the techniques we cover in Stata. Additional template Stata code will be provided to workshop participants allowing everyone to reproduce all workshop examples.
The seminar will use Stata. Stata is widely-used to clean, examine, model, and visualize data. The data and model visualization capabilities of Stata are impressive yet vastly underutilized by most users. This seminar will teach attendees about best data visualization practices generally—and specific ways to implement these using Stata.
