Overview

Meeting

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. The meeting will include presentations about causal models, general statistics, and data management, both by researchers and by StataCorp staff. The meeting will also include a “Wishes and grumbles” session, during which you may air your thoughts to Stata developers.

Workshop

On the day before the conference, Jeffrey Pitblado, Associate Director, Statistical Software at StataCorp will present a workshop, Survey data analysis with Stata. The workshop will begin by reviewing the sampling methods used to collect survey data and how they affect the estimation of totals, ratios, and regression coefficients. It will then cover the three variance estimators implemented in Stata’s survey estimation commands, as well several more specific topics (see description).

Language

The conference language will be English because of the international nature of the meeting and the participation of non-German guest speakers.
