Advanced Coding Skills: Renaming & Constructing Complex Variables
Instructor: Hsueh-Sheng Wu
Monday, May 22, 12:30–1:30 pm
CFDR Conference Room, 7C Williams Hall   

        Researchers often need to perform managerial and computational tasks not only on a single variable, but also on multiple variables. This workshop demonstrates how to use commands such as “array,” “foreach,”, “forvalue,” and “macro” in SAS or Stata to simplify these tasks. When these commands are adopted in the programming code, researchers can efficiently complete these tasks and easily identify errors in the code.

Grant Writing
Instructor: Wendy Manning
Monday, June 12, 11:30–12:30 pm
CFDR Conference Room, 7C Williams Hall

        This workshop will guide you through the stages of planning and executing a grant proposal that clearly explains your potential unique contribution to research. From the early stages of defining the significance of your project and assessing the feasibility to the final stages of planning a budget and routing the proposal, this workshop will focus especially on grant-writing advice for faculty and advanced graduate students who are preparing their first internal and external funding proposals.

Sequence Analysis Using TraMineR 
Instructor: Matthias Studer, University of Geneva, Switzerland
Tuesday, July 11, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
103 Psychology Building

Pre-registration is required
        This workshop introduces TraMineR, a program which uses R for mining, describing and visualizing sequences of states or events. Its primary aim is the analysis of biographical longitudinal data in the social sciences, such as data describing careers or family trajectories. Topics include a brief introduction to R, descriptive analysis and visualization, longitudinal data handling, creating typologies of sequences, and advanced clustering.  This is a one-day, hands-on workshop.

Introduction to the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) 
Instructor: Hsueh-Sheng Wu
Monday, July 31, 11:30-12:30 pm
CFDR Conference Room, 7C Williams Hall
        The Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), overseen by the U.S. Census Bureau, is a continuous series of survey of national panels (1984-2014) to generate reports on sources and amounts of income, labor force participation, and welfare program participation and eligibility. Different from previous panels, SIPP 2014 panel data was redesigned in terms of how many times households were interviewed each year, whether an Event History Calendar was used, and what topics were covered in the survey. This workshop provides an introduction to SIPP 2014 panel data and demonstrates how to download and manage the data in SAS and Stata.
