Title: Introduction to Stata Frames & Efficient Data Visualization  in Large Datasets

Abstract: In this presentation I will talk about efficiency in statistical programming, introduce the concept of data frames in Stata, and talk about one application of data frames: the family of Stata commands (PLOT) for efficient data visualization. The PLOT family of commands is particularly useful for visual analyses of admin data, enabling users to produce a variety of highly customizable plots in a fraction of time required by Stata's native graphing commands. Benchmarking of the graphs show that PLOT commands can prove more than 100-times faster than the native commands, with the efficiency gains growing with sample size.
