EHA LAB SESSIONS

Instructor: Evan Schofer, University of Minnesota

There are three ways in which you can access the datasets for these sessions:

  1. Download them to the workstation's "Work" directory
  2. Use Stata's internet connectivity to read the data directly from this web site
  3. Map Kellogg's server as a drive attached to the workstation

i. Download the files to the "Work" directory

Right-click on the file link and choose "Save as" (or "Save target as"):

ii. Use Stata's internet connectivity to read the data directly from this web site

To read the data files over the internet in Stata, type:

use http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/researchcomputing/workshops/eha/gssmar, clear

To execute a "do" file over the internet,

do http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/researchcomputing/workshops/eha/EHALab1marriage

Note that the "copy" command would also work to make a local copy of a file stored in a web site.

iii. Map Kellogg's server as a drive attached to the workstation

  1. Open a command window (look for "Command Prompt" under the Start menu)

    >"Map" Kellogg's web server as drive "X" on the computer using the following command:

    net use x: \\129.105.97.51\docs\researchcomputing\workshops\eha

  2. The site containing the datasets will now show up as a drive in the computer. Using Stata you may now read the data with the "use" command:

    use x:\gssmar, clear
