Workshop: Survey data analysis using Stata


Chuck Huber


1–2 December


This course covers how to use Stata for survey data analysis assuming a fixed population. It begins by reviewing the sampling methods used to collect survey data and then discusses how they act in the estimation of totals, ratios, and regression coefficients. It then covers variance estimation methods implemented in Stata’s survey estimation commands. The course will also cover strata with a single sampling unit, certainty sampling units, subpopulation estimation, and poststratification. Interactive Stata sessions are dispersed between lectures.
