Often in research projects, it is necessary to use data from different sources. In this workshop, we discuss how you can combine different data sets into a single data set that you can use for analysis. We show you how to do this both in Excel and Stata, and discuss common issues using hands-on examples using financial databases Compustat Global & Datastream. 

Prerequisites
The workshop aims at advanced bachelor and master students, in particular those starting work on their thesis. No prior knowledge is required, but some experience with Excel, Stata, and working with databases is recommended. Tutorial videos for the databases are available on the Research Data Services course in Blackboard: https://bb.vu.nl/ > Courses > Universiteitsbibliotheek VU > UBVU_DATACENTRUMUBVU_9999_1. The workshop will be taught in English.

Costs
