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 (event-history) data. Students also learn data management skills that are specific to conducting event-history analysis in Stata.
