Programming Estimation Commands in Stata and Mata
This workshop will show participants how to write estimation commands for Stata. No Stata or Mata programming experience is required, although it does help. After providing an introduction to basic Stata do-file programming, the class covers basic and advanced ado-file programming. Next, it provides an introduction to Mata, the byte-compiled matrix language that is part of Stata. Finally, the class shows how to implement linear and nonlinear statistical methods in Stata and Mata programs and how to test them by Monte Carlo simulation.
