E360 Stata: Regression Analysis with Historical Data

Due to infection protection measures,  the Stata course: Regression Analysis with Historical Data (E360)
is held as online event. 

Content

Since the 1960s, statistical analysis of historical data has become far more prominent in the field of economic history. Conventional descriptive methods, such as the specification of frequencies, averages, etc., are now generally supplemented by inductive statistics which deal with the derivation of deeper relationships between economic variables. Since statistical conclusions are easily misunderstood when results are portrayed inappropriately or when misguided methods are followed, this course aims to instill a sense of statistical literacy and enable students to better judge the results of others as well as their own. Stata has become a standard tool in the arsenal of any economist and is widely applicable for statistical analyses in general. Inter alia, the following topics are covered in this course: Data management, OLS-, logit- and panel analysis. In a short practical assignment, students will have the opportunity to apply some of these techniques.
