Statistical data elaboration lab

CFU: 6

Year: I

Instructor: Leonardo Grilli, Vincenzo Mauri

This course provides the basics of a widely-used package like Stata with a continuous reminding to the statistical theory behind. The aim of the course is twofold: a) provide students with a basic knowledge of a statistical software (Stata), b) develop skills needed to conduct standard analyses, and adequately interpret the results. The course is divided in two parts: the first focuses on a refresh of the statistical theory, while the second deals with the basics of Stata software. On the theoretical side, the course will revise basic topics in statistics (linear and multiple regression models, estimation, diagnostics and test the best specification of the model, analysis of variance, panel data and GLS).

Lectures, group activities and computer tutorials are interconnected so that students can link the theoretical knowledge with the practical skills of performing statistical analyses using a computer. The second part will make the student at ease with Stata software.
