Title Time Location Description
Introduction to Stata 

9:00-10:00 AM

Donald Bren Hall Room 2011

Introduction to the Stata interface, the data editor, the do-file editor, the menus, the dialog boxes, the help files, and the pdf documentation.

Causal Inference for Complex Observational Data 

10:00-11:30 AM

Donald Bren Hall Room 2011

Observational data often have issues which present challenges for the data analyst including non-random treatment assignment, data missing not at random (MNAR), and unobserved confounding. This talk will demonstrate how to use standard maximum likelihood estimation to fit extended regression models (ERMs) that deal with all of these common issues alone or simultaneously.

Power Analysis

1:00-4:00 PM

Donald Bren Hall Room 5011

The first half will be an introduction to the concepts and jargon of power and sample size calculations, as well as demonstrate use of Stata's -power- commands and creating tables and graphs for power, sample size, and minimum detectable effect sizes. The second half will focus on calculating power using simulation methods and creating your own custom power calculation programs that leverage Stata's -power- command.

The free classes are open to UCI staff, faculty, and students. You can attend any one or all three classes.

Trainings will be held on Monday, April 22, 2019
