Learn how and when to use Stata’s treatment-effects estimators to analyze treatment effects in observational data. Use regression adjustment, inverse probability weights, doubly robust methods, propensity-score matching, and covariate matching to estimate average treatment effects (ATEs) and ATEs on the treated. We will cover the conceptual and theoretical underpinnings of treatment effects as well as many examples using Stata.
After presenting the potential-outcome framework and discussing the estimated parameters, the course discusses six estimators:

Enrollment is limited. This course is offered in both classroom and web-based settings.
Classroom training courses are two-day courses that run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day. These courses take place at a training center where computers with Stata installed are provided. A continental breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack will also be provided; the breakfast is available before the course begins.
Web-based training courses are four-day courses that run from 12:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Central Time each day. You will be provided with a temporary Stata license to install on your computer, a printed copy of the course notes, and all of the course datasets so that you can easily follow along.
