Bayesian analysis using Stata (Yulia Marchenko, StataCorp)
and Graphics in Stata (Maarten Buis, Universität Konstanz)
Below is the description for the Bayesian analysis using Stata workshop:
This workshop covers the use of Stata to perform Bayesian analysis.
Bayesian analysis is a statistical paradigm that answers research
questions about unknown parameters using probability statements. For
example, what is the probability that a person accused of a crime is
guilty? What is the probability that the odds ratio is between 0.3 and
0.5? And many more. Such probabilistic statements are natural to
Bayesian analysis because of the underlying assumption that all
parameters are random quantities. In Bayesian analysis, a parameter is
summarized by an entire distribution of values instead of one fixed
value as in classical frequentist analysis. Estimating this
distribution, a posterior distribution of a parameter of interest, is at
the heart of Bayesian analysis. This workshop will demonstrate the use
of Bayesian analysis in various applications and will introduce Stata's
suite of commands for conducting Bayesian analysis.
Below is the description of the Graphics in Stata workshop:
This workshop is intended for participants who want to make the most out
of graphs in Stata. Stata has very powerful graphics language, but with
power comes an elaborate syntax with a lot of options. This makes it
easy to get lost and overlook useful possibilities. In this workshop we
will focus on building your graph step by step, and tips and tricks to
create informative graphs.
