We invite applications from interested individuals who use or would like to use the LiK data to conduct research and analytical work. Participation in the workshop is free of charge.

The workshop will be held in offline mode, and we target to have about 20 participants. We will ask the participants to bring their laptops with the Stata statistical software installed. The Stata program is planned to be provided for temporary use for the duration of the workshop. The language of the workshop is Russian. We will provide a simultaneous translation if there will be only English-speaking participants. The workshop will be recorded and later posted on UCA’s YouTube channel.

The workshop will be delivered by Dr Damir Esenaliev at IGZ and ISDC, the Academic Coordinator of the LiK Study. The program will include an overview of the LiK Study developments and impact since its inception in 2010, the construction of an individual panel file across waves, the specifics of using the variables that are not collected every wave, and questions and answers session. Most workshop topics are demonstrated by hands-on work based on the LiK data using the Stata program.
