11 Ottobre 2005 — Corsi di formazione

09:30–13:00 Corso su Mata
The objective of this course, which will be given by William Gould (President of StataCorp), is to provide an introduction to Stata's new matrix programming language, Mata. The emphasis will be on how Mata can be used both by programmers and non-programmers. Topics covered include:
  • Mata basics
  • Interpretive commands
  • Functions
  • Use of views onto the Stata dataset
  • Using views to solve data-management problems
  • The Mata programming language
  • The mechanics of Mata programming
  • Translation from FORTRAN into Mata
  • Use of subscripts
  • Numerical accuracy
Please note that the Mata course will be given in English.
9:30–18:00 Survival analysis in Stata
Survival Analysis is a field replete with jargon — censoring, truncation, hazard, etc. The key to understanding survival analysis is in decoding the jargon and applying basic statistical principles to data which arise from following subjects until death or failure. The Stata approach to survival analysis is unique in the sense that the majority of effort is devoted to "setup-oriented" tasks, i.e. data manipulation and declaration of the key duration and censoring variables to Stata via the stset command. Once the data have been set up, analysis using Stata is fairly straightforward, allowing the researcher to turn their attention to the interpretation and application of results. Analysis of survival data can take one of three forms: nonparametric analysis such as logrank tests, semiparametric Cox regression, and parametric analysis via streg As such, the topics covered in the course will include
9:30–13:00 Part I: Data Manipulation and Declaration
  • The unique aspects of duration data
  • Terminology
  • Converting other types of data to duration data
  • stset
14:30–18:00 Part II: Data Analysis
  • Nonparameteric analysis
  • Cox proportional hazards regression
  • Parametric regression
Please note that the Survival analysis course will also be given in English.
