Training course on Regression and Variance analysis for Eurostat

The first stakeholders’ meeting of the SBAS project

November 2013 – For Eurostat we have provided a 3-days training course on Regression and Variance Analysis, Prof.George Kapetanios and Dr.Fotis Papailias were our trainers.

This course has been designed to be a comprehensive and friendly introduction to fundamental concepts of regression and variance analysis. This course was divided in two parts: (i) a theoretical and (ii) a practical one. The first part of the course was to explain the intuition of the theoretical aspects of the above topics without the use of asymptotic proofs. The second and interactive part of the course was an application of the theory in real data using the R Language for Statistical Computing.

 

KO meeting for the Eurostat’s Handbooks project

October 2013 – HENDYPLAN has started the activities for the preparation of four statistical handbooks: Cyclical Composite Indicators;  Rapid Estimates; Seasonal Adjustment; and Revision Analysis

The project has been awarded by Eurostat over a period of 18 months and will produce four handbooks addressing theoretical and practical issues and providing methodological guidance.

Handbooks cover statistical areas relevant to the core activities of Eurostat in particular related to Principle European Economic Indicators PEEIs. The purpose of this project is to address the above mentioned issues in a systematic way in order to support the harmonization efforts of Eurostat within the ESS by the production of four handbooks. These handbooks will be based on draft versions available through earlier Eurostat efforts.
