By Thom S. Jayne

There are several objectives in this: to familiarise IAPRI researchers with the World Bank’s World Development Indicators database and its potential applications in IAPRI’s research; to provide some relevant applied examples of accessing this database in Stata via the wbopendata command; and, to review several important data manipulation techniques available in Stata – a) alternative structures for panel data and the reshape command b) Stata programming functions for selecting sub-sets of data and looping over ranges.
