Stata course on analysis of survey data

SGE members may be interested in a short course in DC in October on using Stata for analysis of survey data obtained through a complex sampling design from a finite population. It begins by reviewing the sampling methods used to collect survey data, and then discusses how they need to be accounted for in estimation of means, totals, ratios, and regression coefficients. It then covers variance estimation methods implemented in Stata’s survey estimation commands. The course will also cover difficult situations like strata with a single sampling unit, certainty sampling units, subpopulation estimation, and poststratification. Interactive Stata sessions are dispersed between lectures. Further information available at: http://www.stata.com/training/public/survey-data-analysis-using-stata/
