Survey Data Analysis with Stata — Continuing Education CTW
ASA , Stata
Instructor(s): Jeffrey Pitblado, StataCorp LP
This workshop covers how to use Stata for survey data analysis assuming a fixed population. Knowledge of Stata is not required, but attendees are assumed to have some statistical knowledge, such as what is typically covered in an introductory statistics course. We will begin by reviewing the sampling methods used to collect survey data, and how they affect the estimation of totals, ratios, and regression coefficients. We will then cover the three variance estimators implemented in Stata's survey estimation commands. Strata with a single sampling unit, certainty sampling units, subpopulation estimation, and poststratification will be also covered in some detail. Each topic will be illustraited with an example in a Stata session.
