This workshop will focus on how to create publication-ready graphs using Stata. We will begin with a short demo of how to create standard graphs in Stata, and continue on to more high-quality formats for greater legibility and a more polished display. By the end of the workshop, participants will have an understanding of Stata’s graphing capabilities and how to format various elements of graphs for presentation and publication. A fully annotated do-file will be made available during the workshop for reference.
