Getting Started: Analysing HILDA with Stata

About this event

A 3-day hands-on introductory HILDA Survey training course will be held on 8th - 10th September 2021 at the Australian National University in Canberra. An optional half-day introduction to Stata will also be provided on 7th September for those that have not used Stata before.

This 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 and go through all the steps necessary to answer the research questions involved.

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

• Applying weights

• Generating descriptive statistics in the panel context

• Understanding data patterns in the panel context

• Answering the question

There will be scope within the course to deal with individual questions which participants might have about data extraction and structure in panel data contexts.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea provided.

Course Instructors

The course will be presented by Professor Robert Breunig and Associate Professor Nicole Watson.

Professor Robert Breunig is a member of the Crawford School of Public Policy at the Australian National University. His primary applied research interests are in analysing individual and firm behaviour, evaluating government tax and transfer programs and analysing large data sets.

Associate Professor Nicole Watson is part of the HILDA Survey team at the Melbourne Institute: Applied Economic & Social Research, The University of Melbourne. She has worked on the HILDA project since 2000 and has been responsible for the sample design, weighting, imputation and survey management.
