1 Research Technology Consulting Simo Goshev Alex Storer Steve Worthington Ista Zahn
2 Consulting Goals Data analysis support and programming services Research project planning and guidance selecting appropriate technology for research projectsFacilitating appropriate organization, storage and sharing of dataTraining on the use of both established software packages and emerging tools
3 Scope Free! Support the entire social science community Consults measured in hours rather than weeks or monthsCurrently doing outreach to departments, student groups and centersDrop-ins on Fridays at 1pm in the training lab, Appointments, Help Tickets and casual chats in K306

19 Help with econometrics and/or Stata How do I bootstrap estimates from survey data?Stata does not support weighting for the type of graph I want to create. Can you help?I want to study the factors underpinning scholar migration. What identification strategies would you suggest?I have two datasets and I want to merge them. However, there are not unique case ID’s in either. What would you recommend?I have a large and highly sensitive dataset stored in a SQL database. Can you help me access the database directly from within Stata?
20 Help with computation/estimation I am trying to estimate a model but for some reason the routine fails. Could you have a look at my script ?I am working with a large dataset and my machine is giving up on me. Do you have any suggestions?Which estimation method is best for…?
