Data Analysis with Stata: Panel Models

Institution: see Organisers & Supporters

Programme of study: International Research Workshop

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Timo Friedel Mitze (University of Southern Denmark)

Date: see Workshop Programme

Max. number of participants: 20

Credit Points: 5 CP for participating in the whole IRWS

Language of instruction: English

Contents: The one-day workshop is organized as a (basic!) introduction to the use of panel data in the different fields of business and social sciences. It is not meant as an expert course in advanced panel data modelling. Participants should take this into account before enrolling for the course.

Panel data (sometimes also referred to as longitudinal data) can be best described as the combination of cross-sectional and time-series information for individuals, firms, regions, countries etc. The main goal of the workshop is thus to provide participants with insights into why and when applied researchers can benefit from working with panel data. The course gives an overview of the different types of micro and macro models that are available for panel data estimation and shows how to properly estimate these models with the help of the statistical software package STATA. Examples of models covered are pooled OLS (POLS), random and fixed effects type models, REM and FEM, respectively, Difference-in-Difference estimation and panel event studies. On the fly, the workshop will show participants how STATA organizes panel data to use the above-described models effectively. Building on these basics, a brief outlook on more advanced panel data estimation techniques will be given.

Course Tools: Please bring your laptop computer. STATA can be installed at the beginning of the IRWS. Licences will be provided. Datasets and STATA ado-files will be provided ahead of the course and should be installed on the participants’ computers. A list of introductory readings will be provided to registered participants ahead of the course.

Exemplary Readings: Baltagi, B. Econometric Analysis of Panel Data. 3rd or higher edition, Wiley.

Data Visualization

Institution: see Organisers & Supporters

Programme of study: International Research Workshop

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Daniel Schnitzlein (Leibniz University Hannover & Inside Statistics)

Date: see Workshop Programme

Max. number of participants: 20

Credit Points: 5 CP for participating in the whole IRWS

Language of instruction: English

Contents: Results of scientific research are often (and increasingly) complex and hard to understand for a non-scientific audience. However, at the same time, the transfer of results from academic research to an outside-academia recipient, for example, politics, private foundations or private firms providing research funding, but also the interested public, gets more and more important. Probably the most important skill in this context is the ability to create good visualization of your main (quantitative data-based) results.

Today, data are everyday companions in almost all scientific and professional fields. The graphical representation of data is both an elementary step in the analysis process and an important component in communicating the results. The course Data Visualization trains this ability and leads you away from the standard diagrams of common office/statistics packages to clear and concise representations with the help of many practice-oriented examples. The course consists of 50% lectures and 50% hands-on sessions.

Requirement of students: Basic knowledge of empirical (quantitative) social and economic research is beneficial but not strictly necessary. The methods trained in this course are applicable to all visualization tasks independent of the applied software package. Visualization examples will be based mainly on R. Code examples will be provided within the lecture. A selection of examples will also be available in Excel and Python.

You have to register for the International Research Workshop to participate in this course.

Institution: see Organisers & Supporters

Programme of study: International Research Workshop

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Daniel Schnitzlein (Leibniz University Hannover & Inside Statistics)

Date: see Workshop Programme

Max. number of participants: 20

Credit Points: 5 CP for participating in the whole IRWS

Contents: The course provides an overview of the theoretical basics and empirical evidence of questionnaire design. The cognitive process of survey responding, challenges of designing effective survey questions including aspects of proper question wording and optimal response formats, as well as pretest techniques for evaluating survey questions will be discussed. A practical part will accompany the lecture.

You have to register for the International Research Workshop to participate in this course.

A differentiated Europe and its implications

The core objective of this course is to address differentiation as a central concern in European studies, across academic disciplines from political science, public policy and public administration, to law, sociology and history. All modern political systems are differentiated; the EU is distinctly so. Precisely how and what the implications are for the EU and its member states remain contested. The course aims to conceptualize differentiation, discuss causes and effects of differentiation, and show how differentiation manifests itself internally in the EU and in the EU’s relations with non-members.

Date:
21-24 June 2022

Location:
University of Oslo, zoom

Lecturer:
– John Erik Fossum, Professor of Political Science, ARENA and EU3D Scientific Coordinator
