The Mexican Stata Users Group meeting is a one-day international conference about the use of Stata in a wide breadth of fields and environments, mixing theory and practice. The bulk of the conference is made up of selected submitted presentations. Together with the keynote address and a featured presentation by a member of StataCorp’s technical staff, these sessions provide fertile ground for learning about statistics and Stata. All users are encouraged to submit abstracts for possible presentations.
Presentation topics might include (but are not limited to) the following:
We are delighted that Professor A. Colin Cameron (University of California–Davis) has accepted our invitation to present the keynote address. Professor Cameron is a world-known leader in the fields of econometrics and health economics. He is an author (jointly with Pravin K. Trivedi) of well-known textbooks in econometrics such as Microeconometrics: Methods and Applications, Regression Analysis of Count Data, and Microeconometrics Using Stata. He has authored more than 25 papers in highly regarded journals, including Quarterly Journal of Economics, Journal of Public Economics, Journal of Econometrics, Review of Economic Studies, Journal of Business and Economic Statistics, and Journal of Applied Econometrics, among others.
The meeting will include the usual “Wishes and grumbles” session, at which you may share your thoughts with Stata developers. After the meeting, there will be an optional informal meal (for an additional cost) at a Mexico City restaurant for further discussion of all things Stata.
The meeting is organized by MultiON Consulting SA de CV, distributor of Stata for Mexico and Central America. The meeting is open to everyone, and StataCorp will be represented.
The deadline for submissions is March 19, 2011. The program will be announced by the end of the second week of April. Please send submissions by email to the scientific committee. Indicate the length of the talk you wish to give:
Presentations may be given in English or in Spanish, depending upon the preference of the speaker.
