Dear Kobo users (and especially the Stata users among you),
I am pleased to announce that a new Stata module - kobo2stata - is now available from the SSC server. Many thanks to Kit Baum who maintains the SSC.
kobo2stata creates labelled Stata datasets from KoboToolbox. It combines the information contained in KoboToolbox’s raw data file and the XLSForm. The main focus is on applying the variable labels and value labels from the XLSForm to the data. There are also some secondary functions, e.g. the removal of HTML tags from labels, or the (optional) removal of note-type variables.
To try it out, just type “ssc install kobo2stata” in Stata. Once installed, you can type “help kobo2stata” for detailed explanations.
This is a new module, so if you experience any problems or have suggestions for improvement (or just want to say that it works great), I would love to hear from you via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
All the best,
