CMGPD Training Workshop

A workshop to provide training in the use of CMGPD-LN is tentatively planned for July 25-August 12 at Shanghai Jiaotong University, in Shanghai, China. The workshop will be taught by Cameron Campbell. Students will learn how to use the data to carry out event-history analysis of key social and demographic outcomes such as marriage, mortality, reproduction, household division, migration, and status attainment. Students will also learn how to manipulate the data to create variables related to their interests. Readings will include documentation for the CMGPD-LN, and publications that used the CMGPD-LN. Students will carry out exercises manipulating and analyzing the data, and will complete and present a small project. For more information, contact Cameron Campbell at camcam@ucla.edu.
