Feedback and Testimonials
Delegate feedback from Panel Data Using Stata (December 2014, on-site training course):
"The course covered both the basics as well as the more detailed aspects of panel data. The professor pitched the content at just the right detail to allow us to understand some of the fundamentals but not get lost in the detail."
"The content of the course was exactly what we were looking for. A wide range of useful topics were covered according to our needs without unduly going into the theoretical maths behind it. It was a well thought through course for our needs."
"The teacher was fantastic / could not have asked for more. Very helpful and all incredibly relevant."
