The second North American Stata Users Group meeting will be held March 17, 2003 in Boston, Massachusetts at the Longwood Galleria Conference Center.

The content of the meeting is being organised by a committee co-chaired by Kit Baum, Boston College and Marcello Pagano, Harvard School of Public Health. The logistics are being organised by Stata Corp. Precise timings will be announced at a later date. An on-line registration form for the meeting, a dinner that evening, and the next day's optional short course on "Measurement error in nonlinear models" are available at, linked to that page.

Previous Stata Users Group meetings have been held in Boston (2001), Britain, Spain and the Netherlands. All meetings are open to anyone interested without regard for level of expertise or geographic location. Stata Corp will be represented. There will be the usual "wishes and grumbles" session at which you may air your thoughts to Stata developers.
