This course will cover various methods of sample selection, and their advantages and disadvantages. We will also discuss why it is important to analyze survey data using methods that account for its complex design, and how to do in Stata. Students should have had at least previous course in statistics – no prior knowledge of sampling theory is assumed, but students should be comfortable with statistical concepts such as hypothesis testing, variance, standard errors, confidence intervals, etc. In addition, basic knowledge of Stata is required.
