The schedule includes one and two-day data trainings, which are mainly aimed at preparing analyses based on NEPS data. The corresponding exercises for data preparation are based on Stata, but no special previous knowledge is necessary.

  • The focus of the one-day events as well as the first day of the two-day events is on general familiarization with NEPS data including documentation and on basic steps of data preparation by means of practical exercises. These introductions are independent of a specific NEPS starting cohort.

  • In addition to the general part on the first day, the two-day events give an insight into selected topics of NEPS data use. Both training days can be attended together or separately.
