You do not need to attend all sessions; however, the sessions build on each other and it will be assumed you are familiar with the material in earlier sessions. The workshop materials can be found at https://cscar.github.io/workshop-stata-intro/
It is strongly encouraged that you have a current version of Stata (version 16) available on your local computer, though not required. You may access Stata through midesktop (https://midesktop.umich.edu/
) if needed. If you have an older version of Stata, some material may not work on your system.
