Education, Training

Start date


End date




The course will show how economic and financial time series can be modeled and analyzed. The aim is to provide understanding and insight into the methods used, as well as explaining the technical details. Statistical modeling will be demonstrated using the Stata Software and participants will be given the opportunity to use Stata in class. Statistical modeling will be demonstrated using the Stata Software. This course will equip you with skills needed in statistical analysis. Make meaningful statistical choices and help in time series forecasting.
