Introduction to Stata October 3 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon in CLICC Classroom B (third floor of the Powell Library building)
sign up here. The workshop notes are here.
Description: Stata is a powerful and yet easy-to-use statistical package that runs on Windows, Macintosh and Unix platforms.
This class is designed for people who are just getting started using Stata. The students in the class will have a hands-on experience using Stata
for statistics, graphics and data management. The class notes are the scripts for the class available to the students in the class and to others
on the Internet. The Stata class notes do not contain any of the output. The class notes are not meant to be a Stata textbook or a reference manual.
However, it is possible for individuals to use the class notes to help in learning Stata even if they don't enroll in the workshop.

SAS Teaching Initiatves Thursday, October 20 at 10 a.m. in the Visualization Portal, Math Sciences 5268
sign up here
The IDRE Statistical Consulting Group is hosting a discussion with Scott MacConnell, a SAS representative, who would like to introduce you to the free software and resources
SAS provides for teaching initiatives (for example, SAS University Edition http://www.sas.com/en_us/software/university-edition.html). The discussion is aimed at
professors who would like to use the resources for teaching, but all UCLA researchers are welcome to attend. Although a short presentation is involved, the event
is designed to be a Q&A session for you to learn about how SAS can meet your specific needs as an educator and researcher.

Introduction to Structural Equation Modeling Using Stata November 16 10 a.m. to 12 noon in 5628 Math Sciences (the Portal)
sign up here.
Description: This talk will introduce the concepts and jargon of structural equation modeling (SEM). We will demonstrate how to fit SEMs for continuous
outcomes using the -sem- command in Stata. We will also demonstrate how use Stata's -gsem- command to fit multilevel structural equation models that include
continuous, binary, multinomial, ordinal and count outcomes using a wide variety of link functions.
