Description

Description

This course aims to equip participants with the skills needed to use STATA to analyse the labour market for evidence-based policy-making, including SDG and decent work indicators. Using a step-by-step approach, it provides practical skills and tips for analysing labour-market data with a view to constructing and interpreting decent work and SDG indicators. There will be a thematic focus on employment outcomes, but the impact techniques explored are equally applicable to interventions targeting other socio-economic outcomes.
