Introduction to Spatial Econometrics using Stata

when 28 September 2020 - 30 September 2020
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 735

Our “Introduction to Spatial Analysis for Longitudinal Data” workshop offers researchers a unique opportunity to acquire the necessary theoretical and empirical toolset for the analysis of spatial longitudinal data, using the more recently developed spatial econometrics methodologies.

Course leader

Federico Belotti

Target group

Ph.D. Students, researchers and professionals working in public and private institutions interesting in acquire the latest empirical techniques to be able to independently implement spatial data analysis.

Course aim

The workshop begins by providing an overview of the more standard concepts in spatial econometrics and illustrating how one should prepare the data set for spatial analysis, before moving on to review the latest methodologies and commands (both official and user written commands) available in Stata. The workshop concludes by focusing on a number of more recent developments in spatial econometrics allowing simultaneously for serial dynamics, spatial spillovers and common factors. During the course of the workshop attention will also be given to the interpretation and presentation of results obtained.

In common with TStat’s course philosophy, each individual session is composed of both a theoretical component (in which the techniques and underlying principles behind them are explained), and an applied segment, during which participants have the opportunity to implement the techniques using real data under the watchful eye of the course tutor. Throughout the course, theoretical sessions are reinforced by case study examples, in which the course tutor discusses and highlights potential pitfalls and the advantages of individual techniques. At the end of the workshop, it is expected that participants are able identifying and evaluate which specific econometric method is more appropriate for the analysis in hand.
