Registration form for the Workshop at the Applied Statistics 2021 conference
Event title: SHARE dataset and analysis of nonstandard data: examples and applications
Presenter: Andrej Srakar (Institute for Economic Research (IER) and School of Economics and Business, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia)
Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) is a multidisciplinary and cross-national panel database, covering 27 European countries and Israel, with micro data on health, socio-economic status and social and family networks of about 140,000 individuals aged 50 or older. Due to its large scale and data quality, it has become subject to numerous applications in past fifteen years, in terms of statistics one could easily describe it as a "toy for statisticians". The workshop will focus on usages of SHARE data with methods from the analysis of nonstandard data, developed for large datasets, largely symbolic and functional data analysis, which are being ever more frequently used in statistics and econometrics. We will present statistical theory behind those methods and use many of them as implemented in R to present interesting and novel applications with SHARE data, based on some of the most recent functional, interval and histogram regressions, clustering and dimensionality reduction methods.
The participants should be familiar with R programming and have it installed on their computer, with the latest version of R. The use of R Studio is also encouraged.
Your data will be used for the needs of this event. Anonymized data can be used for reporting purposes.
