Timberlake Consultants invite you to attend the following three-day course to be held in New York City on 4-6 March 2015.

This course will focus on various applications of Stata 13, including:

  • Organizing and handling data;
  • Data analysis;
  • Linear regression: OLS and GLS;
  • Causal inference with Stata: differences-in-differences and instrumental variables;
  • Producing analysis output: graphs and tables.

The course is designed for academic staff, including master/PhD students, who have a basic knowledge of statistics/econometrics and/or Stata; and those who deal with different types of data and projects in their day-to-day work. The course will also be of interest to non-academic participants who apply data analysis from an econometric perspective.
