Apologies for Cross Postings

Please feel free to forward this note and the attached flyer to anyone who might be interested.

The Center for Research Methods and Data Analysis at the University of Kansas will host the Summer Statistical Institute (Stats Camp) from May
22 through June 9, 2017. Please visit the Web homepage for this event at http://crmda.ku.edu/statscamp. Space is available in all sessions.

These sessions are a combination of lecture format presentations and workshops for "hands on" practice.  We recommend everybody should bring a laptop computer on which they have administrative privileges so that new software can be installed.  There will be plenty of workshop "helpers" to troubleshoot problems during the workshop sessions. We have experience with Linux, MS Windows, and Macintosh computers.

Week 1: May 22-26. Using R (internally referred to as the "summeR workshop").  Covers the basics of interacting with R, importing data, creating graphics, and conducting statistical analysis.  This will introduce tools for project management that are offered in our R package, "kutils". Paul Johnson, CRMDA Director, is the leader on R.

Week 2: May 30-June 2. Using Stata. As in the R workshop, covers basics of interacting with Stata, including data import, recoding, graphics and analysis. A major point of emphasis is development of project management skills.  Jacob Fowles, of the School of Public Affairs, is the leader on Stata.

Week 3: June 5-9. Structural Equation Modeling. The SEM overview will be offered by Professor Edward Merkle of the University of Missouri. The "SEM example" archive created by CRMDA will be introduced.  KU Psychology Professor Holger Brandt will offer three sessions about nonlinear latent models for structural equations. The structural equations material, for the most part, uses R (and some Mplus) and it builds on the R modeling concepts discussed during the first week of the workshop.

I hope you will let your faculty and students know about this opportunity, which I believe is very reasonably priced.  Please see the updated website for all the details http://crmda.ku.edu/statscamp.
Enrollment is still $50/day for KU affiliates and $70/day for students and faculty at other universities.
