From KoBo to Stata (new solution)

stata
#1

Hello KoBo Users,

I have written a little Stata command (“kobo2stata”) that automates the import and labelling of KoBo data into Stata. It’s at an early stage but I’m hoping to eventually submit it to the SSC repository for public use once it’s fully tested and stable…

At this stage, I’m hoping to find a few people who might be interested in playing around with the beta version a little, testing it on their own KoBo data, and providing feedback for improvements…

If you are interested in testing kobo2stata, just leave a message below, and I will share the relevant files via PM. (NB: Stata 14 or 15 required.)

Many thanks and all the best,
Felix

Hi Felix,

Very cool project. I would certainly be interested in playing with this. Have you seen the ietoolkit suite of Stata commands that was released by World Bank DIME analytics? It has a command that accomplishes a similar task (iecodebook)… Essentially, it uses your XLSForm to automatically label and code variables.

Best,

Jonathan
