10 Data handling

11 Apr-15H.S.11Apr-15H.S.11 Import data Using SPSS 14.0-17.0 –Save as, Stata Version 8 SE

12 Apr-15H.S.12Apr-15H.S.12 Use and save data Open data –use “C:\Course\Myfile.dta”, clear Describe –describedescribe all variables –list x1 x2 in 1/20list obs nr 1 to 20 Save data –save “C:\Course\Myfile.dta”,replace

13 Apr-15H.S.13Apr-15H.S.13 Use data from web webuse“file”use data from Stata homepage 1.webuse set “ karriere/forskerutdanning/kurs/biostatistikk/mf 9510-logistisk-regresjon-overlevelsesanalyse- cox/ ” set homepage 2.webuse “birth1”data for exercise 1

14 Apr-15H.S.14Apr-15H.S.14 Generate, replace Index –generate index=0 –replace index=1 if sex==1 & age<30 Young/Old –generate old=(age>50) Serial numbers, lags –generate id=_n –generate age1=age[ _n-1] if age<.

15 Apr-15H.S.15Apr-15H.S.15 Dates From numeric to date ex: m=12, d=2, y=1987 generate birth=mdy(m,d,y) format birth %td From string to date ex: bstr=“01.12.1987” generate birth=date(bstr,”DMY”) format birth %td

16 Apr-15H.S.16Apr-15H.S.16 Missing Obs!!! –Represented as ”.” –Missing values are large numbers –age>30 will include missing. –age>30 if age<.will not. Test –replace age=0 if (age==.) Remove –drop if age==. Change –replace educ=. if educ==99

17 Apr-15H.S.17Apr-15H.S.17 Describe missing Summarize variables Missing in tables misstable summarize bullied sexnew command summarize id bullied sex tab bullied sex, missing

18 Apr-15H.S.18Apr-15H.S.18 Help General –help command –findit keywordsearch Stata+net Examples –help table –findit aflogit

19 Apr-15H.S.19Apr-15H.S.19 Summing up Use do files –Run:Mark, Ctrl-D Syntax –command [varlist] [if exp] [in range] [, options] Missing –age>30 if age<. –generate old=(age>50) if age<. Help –help describe
