PIAAC Data Analysis in Stata: A practical guide

Overall Summary: PIAAC is an international large-scale study that assesses key cognitive skills of the adult population in more than 40 countries. Due to the complex structure of the data, analyses with PIAAC datasets are very challenging. The video tutorial provides practical guidance on how to conduct PIAAC data analysis in Stata.

The target group of the video tutorial are researchers who have at least some experience in data analysis with Stata, who have little or no experience with the analysis of PIAAC data, and who are interested in whether the PIAAC data are suitable for their research question. The tutorial provides several example analyses that can be performed with the PIAAC data.
