Stata

RSS Resources

Stata is another general purpose statistical software package that we support here at RSS.  It is put out by StataCorp based at College Station, and is a comprehensive package that entails a variety of techniques on par with the other major packages.  While not as pervasive as SAS or SPSS in the social sciences, it is very popular among those in political science and economics.  In particular it has a wide variety of options for generalized linear models, time-series analyses, and hazard models.  Stata is also similar to R in allowing user contributed packages to be incorporated seamlessly into the program's overall functionality.  Stata furthermore has a menu system allowing access to almost all built in commands, and in general is a solid all around statistical package.

Stata is the only package for which students who want to purchase a personal copy must come to the RSS office at some point (contact Patrick Mcleod).  Again though, it is free to use in the labs on campus.
