Useful links

A collection of useful links, partly for my own reference.


A short note with some tips I’ve put together for working with “large” datasets in Stata, which links to other resources.

Stata2R from Kyle Butts, Nick Huntington-Klein and Grant McDermott provides a very helpful introduction to data.table and fixest in R, primarily designed for Stata users.

Grant McDermott’s Data Science for Economists course is an excellent introduction to tools such as Git and tasks such as webscraping.

Paul Goldsmith-Pinkham has a useful guide for setting up and using Github Copilot in VS Code, for R, Stata (YMMV), and Latex.


Links to various data sources have been moved to the stand-alone Datasets page.
