The 2nd Brazilian Stata Users Group meeting takes place on Friday, December 8, 2017, at the Faculty of Economics, Administration and Accounting of the University of São Paulo.

In the past, participants have traveled from across Brazil and the world to attend. The meeting provides Stata users the opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences, and information on new applications of Stata. A representative from StataCorp—Bill Rising, Director of Educational Services—will be in attendance. Everyone who is interested in using Stata is welcome.

The conference language will be English because of the international nature of the meeting.
