Economic Analysis Using Stata I

Manzini, Swaziland

In addition to developing and implementing a rigorous curriculum for Masters students, an important component of the CMAAE project is to build skills and research capacity among faculty. Towards this end, a joint World Bank-CMAAE three-day workshop was held on conducting economic analysis using Stata, during which students received the training necessary to reproduce the analysis of a published research paper. The workshop included sessions on preparing data and merging datasets, as well as OLS regressions and probit analysis.
