This workshop will provide an introduction to event history analysis using Stata.
The course will address the following questions: (1) What is event history
analysis and when should I use it? (2) What is a hazard function? (3) What about
censoring? (4) How do I organize my data for event history analysis? (5) Should
I use continuous or discrete time methods? (6) What if I am interested in multiple
events or repeated events?
No prior knowledge of event history analysis is necessary, but participants with
a basic understanding of both Stata and multivariate regression analysis will
benefit most from this workshop. Participants are encouraged to bring their own
laptops if they have Stata installed; a limited number of ISSR laptops will be
available for use.
Upon completion of this course, participants will have an understanding of the fundamentals of event history analysis and when to use it, be able to determine the most appropriate event history models for their particular research question, and know how to prepare their data for analysis.
