2007 West Coast Stata Users Group meeting

Program announced

The first West Coast (of the United States) Stata Users Group meeting will be held October 25 and 26, 2007, at Marina del Rey Hotel, located 10 minutes from Los Angeles International Airport at water’s edge.

Stata Users Group meetings started in Britain in 1995 and have spread to Italy, Sweden, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, Australia, and the East Coast. Talks are intended to be accessible to a general audience with mixed levels of expertise in Stata and statistics. Stata developers will also attend, both to present new Stata features and to take notes during the popular “Wishes and grumbles” session. We hope you will consider attending the meeting.
