The 17th Edition of the NIPE Summer School in Econometrics will run between June 16 to June 19, 2021. “Econometrics of Survey Data, Stratification, and Clustering” is the selected topic for this edition, and the course will be taught by Manuel Arellano, from the Center for Monetary and Financial Studies (CEMFI) – Madrid.
Stratification and clustering are central themes in survey methodology, but in reinterpreted form they are also important for other types of data sets, such as administrative records, group-level and spatial data, experimental data, and subjective expectations. The course will review established methods in the econometrics of stratification and clustering, together with some recent advances in the analysis of clustered and panel survey data sets.
Given the heterogeneous epidemiological circumstances across countries, and the uncertainty associated with it, this year our course will be online.
The course has a duration of approximately 20hours and runs over 3 days 16, 17, and 18 June morning and afternoon (9am-5pm [BST], with time to chat with the instructor, and breaks for coffee and lunch). On the 19th of June, Professor Manuel Arellano will give a seminar in the morning.
We look forward to welcoming you in Braga!
