Stata Pre-Conference Short Course at APSA 2019 Annual Meeting

Title: SC09: Introduction to Bayesian Analysis Using Stata
Presenter: Gustavo Sánchez, Director of Technical Services, StataCorp
Where: APSA 2019 Annual Meeting
Date: Wednesday, 28 August 2019
Time: 1:30 PM to 5:30 PM
Abstract: In recent years, researchers across disciplines have become increasingly interested in Bayesian analysis. This is not surprising because they often have some prior knowledge about parameters of interest, and this can be incorporated when using a Bayesian estimation approach. Bayesian analysis also provides a more natural interpretation of results in terms of probabilities. In this workshop, we will introduce some basic concepts relevant to Bayesian analysis, and we will focus on how to perform Bayesian analysis in Stata.

The topics covered will be:

  • A brief introduction to Stata
  • A brief overview of Bayesian analysis
    • Why and when to use Bayesian analysis
    • Advantages and disadvantages of Bayesian analysis
  • An intuitive description of Markov Chain Monte Carlo
  • Examples using the -bayes:- prefix with Stata estimation commands
    • Linear regression
    • Probit model
    • Random-effects Poisson model
  • Example with -bayesmh-, Stata's command for general Bayesian analysis

Fee: $25.00
