Stata

Learn to use Stata to perform basic Bayesian analysis. Bayesian analysis is a statistical paradigm that answers research questions about unknown parameters using probability statements. For example, what is the probability that a person accused of a crime is guilty? What is the probability that treatment A is more cost effective than treatment B for a specific healthcare provider?

This course will provide an introduction to Bayesian analysis, demonstrate its use in several applications, and introduce Stata's suite of commands for conducting Bayesian analysis.

Become intimately familiar with all three components of Stata: data management, analysis, and graphics. This course is aimed at both new Stata users and those who wish to learn techniques for efficient day-to-day use of Stata. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to use Stata efficiently for basic analyses and graphics. You will be able to do this in a reproducible manner, making collaborative changes and follow-up analyses much simpler. Finally, you will be able to make your datasets self-explanatory to your co-workers and yourself when using them in the future.

Learn how to effectively analyze survival data using Stata. We cover censoring, truncation, hazard rates, and survival functions. Topics include data preparation, descriptive statistics, life tables, Kaplan–Meier curves, and semiparametric (Cox) regression and parametric regression. Discover how to set the survival-time characteristics of your dataset just once then apply any of Stata's many estimators and statistics to that data.

Written for everyone who uses Stata, whether health researchers or social scientists. We provide lesson material, detailed answers to the questions posted at the end of each lesson, and access to a discussion board on which you can post questions for other students and the course leader to answer.

Become an expert in the analysis and implementation of linear, nonlinear, and dynamic panel-data estimators using Stata. This course focuses on the interpretation of panel-data estimates and the assumptions underlying the models that give rise to them. The course is geared for researchers and practitioners in all fields. The breadth of the lectures will be helpful if you want to learn about panel-data analysis or if you are familiar with the subjects.

The concepts presented are reinforced with practical exercises at the end of each section. We also provide additional exercises at the end of each lecture and access to a discussion board on which you can post questions for other students and the course leaders to answer.

Learn about univariate time-series analysis with an emphasis on the practical aspects most needed by practitioners and applied researchers. Written for a broad array of users, including economists, forecasters, financial analysts, managers, and anyone who wants to analyze time-series data. Become expert in handling date and date-time data; time-series operators; time-series graphics, basic forecasting methods; ARIMA, ARMAX, and seasonal models.

We provide lesson material, detailed answers to the questions posted at the end of each lesson, and access to a discussion board on which you can post questions for other students and the course leader to answer.

Learn how to create and debug your own commands that are indistinguishable from the commands in Stata. You will be able to parse both standard and nonstandard Stata syntax using the intuitive syntax command, to manage and process saved results, to post your own saved results, to process by-groups, to create data management commands, to program your own maximum-likelihood estimator, and more. In short, learn to create commands that act just like the commands that ship with Stata.
