West Coast Stata Users Group, Oct. 25

Posted to Site News  |  Nathan Yau

Stata LogoFor those interested in or who already use Stata, the first Stata users group on the west coast is coming up on October 25-26. It’s $150 for both days and of course students get a good discount at only $50. I’m an R user myself, but to each his own.

Stata Users Group meetings started in Britain in 1995 and have spread to Italy, Sweden, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, Australia, and the East Coast. Talks are intended to be accessible to a general audience with mixed levels of expertise in Stata and statistics. Stata developers will also attend, both to present new Stata features and to take notes during the popular “Wishes and grumbles” session. We hope you will consider joining the meeting as a presenter or an attendee.
