Practical Bootstrap Estimation Workshop

 

Presented by Dave Haans, RDC Consultant, Toronto RDC

This workshop will focus on the practical aspects of running bootstrap estimations using Statistics Canada's Bootvar, SAS Survey Procedures, and the statistical software package Stata. We will review why we bootstrap, what procedures can be replicated using bootstrap estimation techniques, and what to expect from bootstrapped results. Using a subset of the NLSCY Synthetic files, researchers will then use the RDC's workstations to calculate estimates of their own with RDC staff guidance.

This workshop is open to current Toronto and York RDC researchers only.

Please note that a fee schedule (.pdf) applies to this workshop.
