NIDS Panel Data Course: Analysing Waves 1-4 using STATA, 31 July to 4 August 2017
This five day training course is designed for people who are interested in using the NIDS panel data but have not yet done so. Participants should have honours-level Econometrics, and prior experience using STATA to analyse cross-sectional household survey data. However, experience working with panel data is not necessary.

It is essential that participants have basic STATA skills and have used microdata in the past. For anyone transitioning from another package (e.g. SPSS, R or SAS) or in need of a quick refresher, SALDRU has an online introduction to STATA, available at

The course will run from 9 am – 4.30 pm each day. Please do not apply to the course if you have other commitments which will require you to skip sessions.

Please note: there will be a daily submission of your DO files, from which you will receive feedback from the tutors.

The deadline for applications is 26 June 2017. We will let applicants know if they have been accepted by 3 July 2017.

We expect participants to confirm their attendance with receipt of corresponding attendance fee by 10 July 2017 at the latest.
