Call for presentations
The fifth Canadian Stata Conference will be held virtually on 30 September 2021.

Presentation topics may include

- innovative use or evaluations of existing Stata commands,
- case studies of using Stata for applications in various disciplines,
- new analytic methods of particular relevance to Stata users,
- reviews of analytic issues, and
