2 Days workshop-Survey data analysis using Stata

Workshop on 1st and 2nd December


This course covers how to use Stata for survey data analysis assuming a fixed population. It begins by reviewing the sampling methods used to collect survey data, and then discusses how they act in the estimation of totals, ratios, and regression coefficients. It then covers variance estimation methods implemented in Stata’s survey estimation commands. The course will also cover strata with a single sampling unit, certainty sampling units, subpopulation estimation, and poststratification. Interactive Stata sessions are dispersed between lectures.

Course leader

Chuck Huber is Director of Statistical Outreach at StataCorp LLC and Adjunct Associate Professor of Biostatistics at the Texas A&M School of Public Health and at the New York University School of Global Public Health. In addition to working with Stata’s team of software developers, he produces instructional videos for the Stata YouTube channel, writes blog entries, develops online NetCourses, and gives talks about Stata at conferences and universities. Most of his current work is focused on statistical methods used by behavioral and health scientists. He has published in the areas of neurology, human and animal genetics, alcohol and drug abuse prevention, nutrition, and birth defects. Dr. Huber currently teaches survey sampling at NYU and introductory biostatistics at Texas A&M, where he previously taught categorical data analysis, survey data analysis, and statistical genetics.

Course topics

  • Sampling
  • Sampling design characteristics
    • Cluster sampling
    • Stratified sampling
    • Sampling without replacement
  • Regression with survey data
  • Variance estimation
    • Linearization
    • Balanced repeated replication (BRR)
    • Jackknife
    • Bootstrap
    • Successive difference replication (SDR)
  • Special types of sampling units
    • Strata with a single sampling unit
    • Certainty units
  • Restricted sample and subpopulation estimation
  • Poststratification

Learning outcomes

Attendees of this workshop will walk away with the following knowledge:

  • The difference between Stata’s standard estimation commands and svy estimation commands
  • How to create SRS and stratified samples from available lists
  • How to use Stata’s svyset command to identify the survey characteristics present in the dataset. These characteristics include:
    • Sampling units at each sampling stage
    • Strata at each sampling stage
    • Sampling fractions used in the finite population correction when units are sampled with out replacement at each sampling stage
    • Replication weight variables
    • Poststrata and their associated sizes
  • How to handle certainty units
  • The available choices for handling strata with one sampling unit
  • The difference between restricted sample estimation and subpopulation estimation


Knowledge of Stata is not required, but attendees are assumed to have some statistical knowledge, such as what is typically covered in an introductory statistics course. This workshop is geared toward data analysis professionals who are not familiar with the survey data features in Stata.

Venue :

Andheri East, Mumbai – 400072. India
