Learn About Using Loops in Do-Files (forvalues) in Survey Data in Stata With Data From the Wellcome Trust Monitor Survey (2009)

By: & Published: 2019 | Product: SAGE Research Methods Datasets Part 2

This SAGE Research Methods Dataset example provides an introduction to and rationale for using loops in Stata when running commands from a do-file, as part of a series of examples looking at ways of improving organisation when working on a research project. Specifically, this dataset introduces looping over values with the “forvalues” command when exploring data in the early stages of a project. The dataset is a subset of data derived from the Wellcome Trust Monitor Survey 2009, and the example examines using loops to improve efficiency, accuracy, and clarity of work. The dataset file is accompanied by a Teaching Guide, a Student Guide, and a How-to Guide for Stata.
