Upcoming Stata training courses in South Africa

Comprehensive data analysis course using Stata (5 days)

Available course dates:
Monday 19 – Friday 24 August 2019 (5 days) — Johannesburg, South Africa
and
Monday 7 – Friday 11 October 2019 (5 days) — Cape Town, South Africa

Presented by CESAR (Centre for Statistical Analysis and Research)

The course objectives include helping participants to:

  • achieve the understanding of descriptive and inferential statistics;
  • be able to summarise and present data collected in their settings;
  • be able to make inferences from data using Stata.

The course uses a fine blend of didactic lectures, group exercises for every session and two project reports that simulate real life scenarios. Participants will be able to produce and interpret basic and intermediate descriptive and inferential statistics using Stata. As a result, they will be able to take raw data, clean them, summarise them, analyse them and take appropriate action. They will also be able to interpret published research results for needed action.

Advanced course in multiple regression and causal inference (5 days)

Available course dates:
Monday 26 – Friday 30 August 2019 (5 days) — Johannesburg, South Africa
and
Monday 14 – Friday 18 October 2019 (5 days) — Cape Town, South Africa

Presented by CESAR (Centre for Statistical Analysis and Research)

This course teaches participants to fit multiple regression models and estimate measures of effect. Simple and multiple regression models for crude and adjusted effects will be covered. Three types of regression models will be covered – linear, quantile and logistic regression.

The course uses a fine blend of didactic lectures, group exercises for every session and two project reports that simulate real life scenarios. After the course, participants will be able to understand the link between bi-variate tests and regression model, for example, the link between t-test and linear regression and chi-squared test and logistic regression. They will be able to build causal or predictive models and interpret the outputs. They will be able to adjust for confounders and estimate independent effects, thereby strengthening causal inference in their research.

The course is taught using Stata. So, it is a pre-requisite that the participants have at least one of the following:

  • Have attended CESAR’s level 1 course: Data Analysis and Management Course using Stata
  • Have previous experience working with Stata
  • Have no previous experience with Stata but can conduct bi-variate tests using another statistical package.
