Dear statalisters,

I will be teaching this workshop in Canada in a couple of months:

2011 Meeting of the Statistical Society of Canada, Wolfville, Nova
Scotia, June 12-15, 2011.

We invite you to register to a WORKSHOP on

      Using Stata for Survey Data Analysis, by Stanislav KOLENIKOV,
University of Missouri

      Sunday, June 12, 2011.

This workshop is intended for survey statisticians who want to
familiarize themselves with survey capabilities of Stata software. The
workshop will match the methodological concepts in survey sampling and
estimation with appropriate Stata commands, proceeding from
descriptive means, totals and proportions to regression and GLM
estimation commands. The main variance estimation methods (Taylor
series linearization, jackknife, BRR and the bootstrap) will be
introduced and exemplified. The bootstrap methods will be discussed in
particular detail.

The attendees must be familiar with the basic concepts of sampling
(stratification, clustering, varying probabilities of selection, use
of sampling weights) and design-based estimation (weighted estimation,
Horvitz-Thompson estimator, Taylor series linearization for variance
estimation). Familiarity with resampling variance estimators (BRR,
jackknife) is an advantage. A basic knowledge of Stata is presumed.

To maximise their learning experience, participants are encouraged to
bring their own computer with Stata installed on it. Note that
bringing a computer will however not be essential to follow the

The workshop will be in English.
