|Description:||A hands-on introductory HILDA Survey training course "Getting started: Analysing HILDA with STATA" - Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA)|
|Location:||Canberra, ANU, Australia|
|Subject:||This 2-day training course is designed for people who are interested in using the HILDA Survey data but have not yet done so. It will take a descriptive research problem such as "What happens to single mothers who receive Parenting Payment Single (PPS)? Do they stay on the program from one year to the next? Do they move to another income support program? Do they leave income support?" and go through all the steps necessary to answer this question. We begin with the HILDA DVD and assume participants have relatively little experience in working with large data sets. The training will then cover the following topics: Accessing the data Finding the right data Visualising the data Merging household and individual data Dealing with missing values Using imputed values Creating analysis variables from HILDA data Generating descriptive statistics in the panel context Understanding data patterns in the panel context Answering the question [gemäß den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]|
