Machine Learning for Prediction and Causal Inference - Masterclass

20th - 21st April, 2021 Online 2 days (20th April 2021 - 21st April 2021) Stata

Presented By: Dr. Melvyn Weeks (University of Cambridge)

This course will review the application of machine learning techniques to both prediction problems and so-called causal problems where a firm or policy maker needs to understand the impact of some form of intervention on a heterogeneous population. We contrast a modelling approach where the analyst makes certain assumption on model specification, including functional form, with an approach where the data mechanism is presumed unknown. In this context we consider the econometrician’s concern for internal validity, alongside the focus within machine learning of ensuring that a model is robust in the sense of generalising to unseen data (external validity).

The course will focus upon topics at the intersection of machine learning and econometrics, covering a mix of theory and applications. In making the distinction between models which are used to solve a prediction problem and models which are used to estimate some form of causal effect, we introduce participants to identification strategies in econometrics. In covering two broad areas where machine learning is used, namely prediction, classification and causal effects, for each case we link the exposition to parametric bench- marks. For Machine Learning models in prediction, classification and causal effects we provide examples using Stata, R and Python.

Econometrics of Program Evaluation Using Stata

8th & 9th March, 2021 Online 2 days (8th March 2021 - 9th March 2021) Stata

Presented By: Dr. Giovanni Cerulli

This course will provide participants with the essential tools, both theoretical and applied, for a proper use of modern micro-econometric methods for policy evaluation and causal counterfactual modelling under both assumptions of “selection on observables” and “selection on unobservables”. The course will cover these approaches: Regression adjustment (parametric and nonparametric), Matching (on covariates and on propensity score), Reweighting and Double-robust methods, and Difference-in-differences methods.

An Introduction to Panel Data Analysis using Stata

Presented By: Dr. Malvina Marchese (CASS Business School, London)

Our web-based 'Introduction to Panel Data Analysis with Stata' course provides an overview of the most-used panel data techniques and is ideal for the beginner/intermediate-level user who wants to learn how to implement panel data estimation with Stata commands.

An Introduction to Machine Learning using Stata - Co-Developed with Lancaster University

7th - 8th April, 2021 Online 2 days (7th April 2021 - 8th April 2021) Stata

Presented by Dr. Giovanni Cerulli

This course is a primer to machine learning techniques using Stata. Stata owns today various packages to perform machine learning which are however poorly known to many Stata users. This course fills this gap by making participants familiar with (and knowledgeable of) Stata potential to draw knowledge and value from rows of large, and possibly noisy data. The teaching approach will be based on the graphical language and intuition more than on algebra. The training will make use of instructional as well as real-world examples, and will balance evenly theory and practical sessions.

Data Science For Health Researchers: An Introduction to Stata

15th - 16th April 2021 Online 2 days (15th April 2021 - 16th April 2021) Stata

Overview

Presented by: Dr. Vincent O'Sullivan

This course is for professionals and researchers who are new to Stata. The course assumes only limited statistical knowledge and experience of using statistical software. The participants will be introduced to Stata’s interface. They will be shown how manage and prepare datasets for analysis. The fundamentals of data analysis and visualization will also be taught. Then, the participants will be introduced to two of the main data analysis tools: linear regression and logistic regression. Participants will be taught the statistical theory behind these methods, and they will apply these methods to specially chosen datasets using examples from health research.

Advanced Panel Data Analysis with Stata

23rd - 24th April 2021 Online 2 days (23rd April 2021 - 24th April 2021) Stata

Presented by Dr. Malvina Marchese (Cass Business School, City, University of London)

The course follows the Panel data Analysis with Stata and aims at provide participants with a theoretical and practical understanding of advanced panel methods, i.e. non-linear panel models.

Each session briefly introduces the different methodologies, discussing strengths and weaknesses with a focus on the interpretation of the results. Hands-on sessions with many practical examples and exercises to discuss the different methodologies on panel data analysis.

Regression Models for Categorical and Limited Dependent Variables

6th - 7th May 2021 Online 2 days (6th May 2021 - 7th May 2021) Stata

Presented by Dr. Anis Samet

This workshop is an introduction to regression analysis with categorical dependent variables using the Stata software. It will cover the most commonly used regression models for categorical outcomes: binary logit and probit, ordinal logit, and multinomial logit.

The course assumes that attendees have prior knowledge of common commands in Stata to organize and handle data and undertake standard regression techniques. Nevertheless, this is an introductory course.

How to Write Your Dissertation with Stata

7th May 2021 Online 1 day (7th May 2021 - 7th May 2021) Stata

The aim of this course is to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of how a good MSc dissertation should look, and how to easily use Stata to obtain any required econometrics.

Participants will receive a free temporary Stata license for the duration of the course

The course is meant for any MSc student writing their MSc dissertation, who needs guidance on the best structure, and most suitable econometric methods to apply. No previous knowledge of Stata is required.

Advances in Causal Inference using Stata

14th - 15th May 2021 Online 2 days (14th May 2021 - 15th May 2021) Stata

Presented by: Dr. Giovanni Cerulli

Econometric modelling for causal inference and program evaluation have witnessed a tremendous development in the last decade, with new approaches and methods addressing an expanding set of challenging problems, both in medical and the social sciences. This course covers some recent developments in causal inference and program evaluation using Stata.

It will provide participants with the essential tools, both theoretical and applied, for a proper use of recent micro-econometric methods for policy evaluation and causal modelling in situations where the standard treatment setting poses limitations.

More specifically, the course will focus on these approaches: (i) Difference-in-differences (DID) with time-varying and time-fixed binary treatment; (ii) the Synthetic Control Method (SCM) for program evaluation, suitable when datasets on many times and locations are available; (iii) models for multivalued and quantile treatment effect estimation.

After attending the course, the participant will be able to setting up and managing a correct evaluation design using Stata, by identifying the policy framework, the appropriate econometric method to use interpreting correctly the results. The course will provide various instructional examples on real datasets.
