Panel-data analysis using Stata


This course provides an introduction to the theory and practice of panel-data analysis. After introducing the fixed-effects and random-effects approaches to unobserved individual-level heterogeneity, the course covers linear models with exogenous covariates, linear models with endogenous variables, dynamic linear models, and some nonlinear models. A quick introduction to the generalized method of moments estimation technique is also included. The differences between the individual-specific and population-averaged interpretations are discussed throughout the course. Concepts are extensively illustrated using excercises and examples worked in Stata.

Enrollment is limited. This course may be offered in a classroom or web-based setting. The type (classroom or web-based) will be designated above when scheduled.

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.

Web-based training courses are four-day courses that run for three and a half hours 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 the course datasets so that you can easily follow along.
