Course date: 24 - 29 June 2019
The 6-day course is a practical introduction to statistic and econometric methods using STATA. You will improve your data handling, analysis and interpretation skills needed to carry-out your own empirical project. You will also gain familiarity with gathering and using large secondary data sets and learn how big data can be utilized.
During the course the fundamentals of regression analysis as well as applied topics related to estimation and inference for probability models, panel data, difference-in-differences and instrumental variables will be covered. Throughout the course, each topic is explained using examples based on real data. The course is hands-on, all computer sessions will be used to replicate results from research articles in finance and economics.
The course will rigorously introduce you to the methods but without the mathematical details behind the models. You will gain a clear understanding of when and how to apply the different models and of their limitations. The course puts an extra emphasis on visualizing regression models and will use graphical intuition to improve the understanding of more advanced topics.
