The workshop covers 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 that typically gained in an introductory statistics course.

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 also will be covered in some detail. Each of the following topics will be illustrated with an example in a Stata session:
