The Stata Winter School consists of a series of one- and two-day courses which can be taken individually or as a whole as required. The School is aimed at students, academics and professionals who want to develop and strengthen their data processing, programming, graphics and statistical skills using Stata. All of the courses are taught interactively using a blend of theory, follow-along demonstrations and exercises.
For the first time, we will be running our winter school entirely online, so you can join from the comfort of your home, anywhere in the world.

The command creates a table that contains the date, the number of confirmed cases, the number of deaths, and the number recovered, plus a calculated variable named 'newcases' - the difference between confirmed cases for two contiguous days.More information
Panel data econometrics has developed rapidly over the last decades.
Longitudinal data are more and more available to researchers and methods to analyse these data are in high demand from scholars from different fields.
The course offers a comprehensive overview on panel data methods with Stata, covering static and dynamic linear models.
Each session briefly introduces the different methodologies, discussing strengths and weaknesses with a focus on the interpretation of the results.
By the end of the two-day on-line course, participants should be able to prepare panel data for the analysis with Stata, choose the relevant model, get the parameter estimates and interpret the results.View full course details
This course provides participants with the essential tools, both theoretical and applied, for a proper use of instrumental variables (IV) and structural equation models (SEM) for statistical causal modelling using Stata.View full course details
