The German Stata Users Group Meeting takes place on Friday, 22 June 2018 at the Universität Konstanz.
There will also be an optional workshop on 21 June.

The meeting will provide Stata users from across Germany and the world the opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences, and information on new applications of the software. Everybody who is interested in using Stata is welcome.

The conference language will be English because of the international nature of the meeting and the participation of non-German guest speakers.

Call for presentations

Does your research rely on Stata? Do you have insights that would enlighten colleagues in your field? Prepare your abstract for the 2018 German Stata Users Group meeting.


by Yulia Marchenko, Executive Director of Statistics, StataCorp


This workshop covers the use of Stata to perform Bayesian analysis. Bayesian analysis is a statistical paradigm that answers research questions about unknown parameters using probability statements. For example, what is the probability that a person accused of a crime is guilty? What is the probability that the odds ratio is between 0.3 and 0.5? And many more. Such probabilistic statements are natural to Bayesian analysis because of the underlying assumption that all parameters are random quantities. In Bayesian analysis, a parameter is summarized by an entire distribution of values instead of one fixed value as in classical frequentist analysis. Estimating this distribution, a posterior distribution of a parameter of interest, is at the heart of Bayesian analysis. This workshop will demonstrate the use of Bayesian analysis in various applications and will introduce Stata’s suite of commands for conducting Bayesian analysis.



Basic knowledge of Stata.
