Statistical Horizons is hosting a new 2-day seminar titled Instrumental Variables. The course will be taught by Dr. Felix Elwert on Friday, September 28 at 9 AM (CT).

This course offers an in-depth survey of modern instrumental variables (IV) analysis. IV analysis is an important quasi-experimental technique with numerous applications in economics, the social and biomedical sciences, business, marketing, and education. This seminar will take students from the basic Wald estimator up to powerful recent developments, including non-parametric tests of the exclusion assumption. Students will get extensive hands-on experience by analyzing real world examples across the social sciences. We will carefully dissect key technical and substantive assumptions to empower students to recognize, understand, and empirically test these assumptions in practice.

This course is a hands-on course with approximately 2 hours of instructor-led software demonstrations and approximately 2 hours of guided exercises. You should bring a laptop with a recent version of Stata installed (release 13 or later).

If you want to understand how and when you use instrumental variables analysis in practice, this course is for you. The material is equally applicable to experimental and non-experimental data. Participants should have a good working knowledge of multiple regression and basic knowledge of Stata (point-and-click graphical user interface or basic command line operation).

The course has a cost of $995, which includes all materials and the course. To register for the course CLICK HERE.
