About


EconLab is a summer/winter school for 6 full days. This course is the ninth one organized. Our aim is to help researches to gain model construction ability by introducing the fundamentals of econometric techniques by using STATA. The course content has both theoretical and applied nature. We prepared the course content by assuming that the participants have either non or limited knowledge of econometrics and STATA.

Goal


Our goal is to help researches to gain model construction ability to carry out their own research independently by introducing the fundamentals of econometric techniques and the relations between economic and social variables by using STATA

Who Should Participate?


Researchers at public/private institutions, academics, graduate students doing research on the fields of economics, finance, labour, and administrative sciences may attend EconLab Modeling School. We suggest the researches of the other social sciences to contact with us about the details of the program before they register.

When? Where?


When?

EconLab Modeling School will be organized on July 08-13, 2019.

Where?

EconLab Modeling School will be organized in Istanbul, Turkey.

Registration and Fees


All participants must register to EconLab Modeling School to attend the courses. The deadline for early/late registrations are May/June 01, 2019. Please note that course capacity is limited to 12 participants. Registration fees are as follows:

Early Registrations (before May 01, 2019)
One-day course : €150
Two-day course : €300
Three-day course: €425
Four-day course : €550
Five-day course : €650
Six-day course : €700

The fees are 50% higher in the late registration period (May 02-June 01, 2019). Registrations are still possible after June 01, 2019 if there is still space left in the class. However, the fees are two-folds after June 01, 2019. Graduate students get 20% discount on all prices.
Registration fees cover admission to sessions, temporary STATA 15 license, coffee breaks, lunches, bag, flash disk, and pen-paper. Registration fee does not include accommodation and/or travel.

Participants may register to any day they wish or the whole program for six days. However, we recommend the participants to register day 1 and day 2 and/or day 5 and day 6 together. Only day 3 (Regression with Dummy Dependent Variables) or day 4 (Panel Data Regression Models) may be taken as a single day course.

Programme


The courses will be giving by Dr. Yilmaz Kilicaslan (Day 1 to Day 4) and Dr. Zeynep Basak (Day 5 and Day 6). Mustafa Ozsari will serve as the teaching assistant.
