Workshop Series

2019 Spring

Regression Analysis in Stata
Instructor: Hsueh-Sheng Wu
Monday, February 18, 12:30-1:30 pm
CFDR Conference Room, 7C Williams Hall
        Regression is one of the most commonly used statistical techniques. However, there is little discussion about what statistical evidence is needed for examining certain research questions and how regression analyses should be specified to generate such evidence. The goal of this workshop is to address these issues and provide a better understanding about the link between research questions and regression analyses. The workshop will cover four topics, including (1) how to find an adequate regression model for the research question of interest; (2) what options in regression commands should be specified to take into account dependent observations and/or observations selected with unequal probabilities; (3) how to test the equality, the linear combination, and the nonlinear combination of regression coefficients; and (4) how to analyze marginal effects to enhance the interpretation of regression results.

Event History
Instructor: Hsueh-Sheng Wu
Monday, April 1, 12:30-1:30 pm
CFDR Conference Room, 7C Williams Hall
        Event history analysis is a technique that social scientists use to examine time individuals need to transit from one status to another and what factors may influence such a transition. Different from OLS regressions, event history analysis is better in retaining respondents with incomplete data and establishing the temporal order of independent variables and outcome variables. This workshop will demonstrate how to construct event history data and conduct Life Table, Cox regression and Discrete Time Analysis.
