Advanced Demographic Methods 1
This course is an introduction to event-history analysis (also known as survival analysis, hazard regression, intensity regression, or duration data analysis) and is given at the advanced Masters / PhD level. Duration data is commonly used to address many research questions in demography, social sciences, and epidemiology. Examples of such questions are: Which factors influence how long people live, how long they stay unemployed, or when do they start a family?
This course introduces the techniques for analyzing such questions and data and covers univariate and basic multivariate (regression) methods for analysis of duration (eventhistory) data. Students also learn data management skills that are specific to conducting eventhistory analysis in Stata. I coordinate this course together with Juho Härkönen.
