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 featured presentations by members of StataCorp’s technical staff, these sessions provide fertile ground for learning about statistics and Stata.

Presentation topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

Presentations may be given in English or in Spanish, depending upon the preference of the speaker.

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.

Also attending will be Isabel Cañette and Gustavo A. Sanchez, Senior Statisticians at StataCorp.
