Description

We often learn statistical data analysis skills using data which is assumed to arise from a simple random sample of the target population. However, most large scale multi-purpose social survey data resources use complex sampling strategies. These include many of the UK’s large scale infrastructural data resources such as Understanding Society or the Millennium Cohort Study. Complex sample designs need to be taken into account when analysing these data if we intend to make inferences to a wider population.

 

This workshop will provide students with the skills to appropriately analyse complex samples data using Stata.

Students need access to Stata, and some familiarity with Stata is assumed.

Course Timings: 11:00 - 15:00 both days.  The course will be delivered online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
