Analysing Micro Data in Stata
Professional training, online courses
Regular fees: 1185 - 2360 EUR
TStat’s Analysing Micro Data in Stata course offers participants a comprehensive introduction to the principle methodologies used in the analysis of micro data. Micro data, data which contains information at the level of a specific unit (such as individuals, firms or entities), has by its very nature become an increasingly important source of information offering researchers and policy makers an effective tool with which to obtain a more in-depth understanding of an array of political, socio-economic and public health phenomena. As such the collection and subsequent analysis of micro data over recent years has proved to be the key to policy formulation, the targeting of interventions and the subsequent monitoring and measurement of the impact of such interventions and policies. Whilst these techniques have been traditionally more applied in the field of economics, the increasing availability of micro data has over recent years resulted in a steady increase in the analysis of micro data by researchers working in Political and Social Sciences, Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Public Health.
TStat’s introduction to micro data analysis course focuses, from both a theoretical and applied point of view, on the following methodologies: count models, binary dependent variable models, multinomial models, Tobit and Interval Regression models, models with treatment variables and Sample Selection and the Control function approach.
In common with TStat’s training philosophy, each individual session is composed of both a theoretical component (in which the techniques and underlying principles behind them are explained), and an applied (hands-on) segment, during which participants have the opportunity to implement the techniques using real data under the watchful eye of the course tutor. Throughout the course, theoretical sessions are reinforced by case study examples, in which the course tutor discusses and highlights potential pitfalls and the advantages of individual techniques. The intuition behind the choice and implementation of a specific technique is of the utmost importance. In this manner, the course leader is able to bridge the “often difficult” gap between abstract theoretical methodologies, and the practical issues one encounters when dealing with real data.
At the end of the course, participants are expected to be able to autonomously implement (with the help of the Stata routine templates specifically developed for the course) the appropriate estimation techniques, given both the nature of their data and the analysis in hand.
Researchers and Ph.D. Students, Professionals working in biostatistics, economics, epidemiology, finance, public health, psychology, social and political sciences needing to acquire the necessary statistical requisites required to independently conduct empirical analysis using micro data.
TStat’s introduction to micro data analysis course focuses from, both a theoretical and applied point of view, on the following methodologies: count models, binary dependent variable models, multinomial models, Tobit and interval regression models, models with treatment variables and sample selection and the control function approach for estimating non-linear models containing endogenous continuous variables.
