An Introduction to Graphs

What you'll learn

Look at the distribution of variables
Investigate whether the distribution of a variable is symmetric or whether it follows a normal distribution
Visualize group differences in a single variable
Visualize group differences when more than one group division is involved
Produce graphs that help us understand the associations between two variables
Customize how the graphs look


Introductory level knowledge of Stata


This course introduces the student to the graphical capabilities of Stata. The course assumes only basic knowledge of data management in Stata. The student should be familiar with the graphical user interface, as well as with loading data sets into memory. The goal of this course is to teach the student the logic of extracting meaning from data sets using visualization tools. This is accomplished by using a single data set from the start of the course up until the very end. Students will learn how to use histograms, quantile Descriptions, and symmetry Descriptions. In addition, students will also learn how to use these tools in order to investigate whether group differences exist. The course then introduces students to bar graphs, box Descriptions, and dot Descriptions, and how these graphs can be used to study differences in groups that are divided along more than one dimension. Finally, the course shows students how to produce graphs that describe the relationship between two variables. Students are taught how to decide which type of Description is best suited for their needs. Throughout the course, students will also learn how to customize the colors and shapes used in the graphs.
