Old Town Hall, Bamberg
The ninth German Stata Users Group Meeting will be held at the Otto-Friedrich-University Bamberg on Friday, July 1, 2011. Everybody from anywhere who is interested in using Stata is invited to attend this meeting.
Attending from StataCorp will be Bill Rising (Director of Educational Services) and Jeffrey Pitblado (Associate Director, Statistical Software). Jeffrey will present a workshop, Survey data analysis with Stata:
In this workshop, I cover how to use Stata for survey data analysis, assuming a fixed population. Knowledge of Stata is not required, but attendees are assumed to have some statistical knowledge, such as what is typically covered in an introductory statistics course. We will begin by reviewing the sampling methods used to collect survey data and how they affect the estimation of totals, ratios, and regression coefficients. We will then cover the three variance estimators implemented in Stata’s survey estimation commands. Strata with a single sampling unit, certainty sampling units, subpopulation estimation, and poststratification will also be covered in some detail. Each topic will be illustrated with an example in a Stata session.
Presentations are sought on topics that include the following:
The conference language will be English due to the international nature of the meeting and the participation of non-German guest speakers. (See the proceedings of other Users Group meetings.)
A preliminary program will be available in April 2011. The final program will be available in May 2011.
If you are interested in presenting a paper, please submit an abstract by email (max 200 words) to one of the organizers. The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2011. Presentations should be about 20 minutes or shorter.
Participants are asked to travel at their own expense. There will be a small registration fee to cover the costs for coffee, tea, and luncheon. There will also be an optional informal meal at a restaurant in Bamberg on Friday evening for an additional cost.
