Linear Regression Techniques in Stata

when 28 May 2018 - 29 May 2018
language English
duration 1 week

This course offers participants a rigorous overview of linear regression techniques. During the two days, you will: i) be given the theory underlying linear regression and, through a series of applied examples, learn to estimate regression models in order to examine relationships between multiple variables; ii) undertake rigorous specification testing in order to test, and correct, for common problems of autocorrelation, endogeneity and heteroskedasticity in the estimated model. Special attention will also be given to the interpretation and presentation of results.

Target group

The course is of particular interest to researchers and professional working in economics, finance, the social sciences and public health, wishing to implement simple and multiple linear regression techniques.

Course aim

This course offers participants a rigorous overview of linear regression techniques. During the two days, you will: i) be given the theory underlying linear regression and, through a series of applied examples, learn to estimate regression models in order to examine relationships between multiple variables; ii) undertake rigorous specification testing in order to test, and correct, for common problems of autocorrelation, endogeneity and heteroskedasticity in the estimated model. Special attention will also be given to the interpretation and presentation of results. At the end of the course, it is expected that participants are able to implement independently the methodologies and techniques acquired during the two days.
