4th Portugal Stata Users Group Meeting – Meeting Programme

Date: Friday, 15 September 2017
Location: Economics Faculty – Porto University.

The Portuguese Stata Users Group meeting is a one-day international conference to discuss the use of Stata across a wide-ranging breadth of fields and environments.

The meeting is open to everyone. In past years, participants have travelled from around the world to attend the event. Representatives from StataCorp will also be in attendance.
