If you need to analyze categorical outcomes and have a basic statistical background, this course is for you. You should have a good working knowledge of the principles and practice of multiple regression, as well as elementary statistical inference. But you do not need to know matrix algebra, calculus, or likelihood theory.
All examples and exercises will use Stata. No previous knowledge of Stata is assumed, however. Furthermore, nearly all the techniques taught in the course can be translated fairly easily to other packages. Lecture notes using SAS are available to registrants upon request.
This is a hands-on course, so you should bring your own laptop loaded with a recent version of Stata. If you don't currently have Stata but know a colleague who has perpetual license for Stata 12, you can arrange for a 30-day free trial by having your colleague fill out a form at http://www.stata.com/customer-service/share-stata/
The course meets on Monday, June 4, and Tuesday, June 5, at Temple University Center City campus, 1515 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA. It runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, with a one-hour break for lunch.
Participants receive a bound manual containing detailed lecture notes (with equations and graphics), examples of computer printout, and many other useful features. This book frees participants from the distracting task of note taking.
The fee of $795 includes all
course materials. A block of guest
rooms has been reserved at the Club Quarters Philadelphia. See the
Lodging Tab at the top of this page for further details.
“The course presented what was described, only better than expected. I not only got a great review but also learned a lot and developed a better understanding of concepts and techniques I’ve been using. Dr. Allison’s organization of the material and the aspects he emphasized enhanced this experience. What I’ve learned will be immediately applicable to my job.”
Kristina Jones, Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation
