An experience like no other, the Stata Conference immerses you into new topics and techniques and gathers Stata users for a one-of-a-kind networking experience.

Nonparametric regression

Don't know how your outcome and covariates are related? No need to force your data into a linear model, logistic model, Poisson model, or any other parametric model. With Stata 15's npregress command, you can fit a nonparametric regression model. Then estimate effects, predict the outcome at one point, or graph the entire response surface.
