Stata is a complete and powerful statistical package that is intended for researchers in all disciplines. With Stata, you get everything you need in one comprehensive package. Thanks to Stata easy to use environment, which is built around the concept of point-and-click, intuitive command language and online help; you will quickly be able to start using this advanced tool. All analysis and results can then be reproduced and documented for your publications.

In Stata, you have hundreds of statistical tools and methods available. These include everything from basic to advanced statistical methods and analysis. Stata also contains a wide range of commands for handling data files and large data sets. You will also find many useful methods to produce graphs and statistical charts of high quality, which you can directly use in your publications and articles.

Some highlights of the new features in Stata 17

Please note that Stata IC edition has been renamed to Stata BE (Basic Edition)

Customizable tables

Stata is now ready to help you create both standard and customized tables, whether you want a table for the web, or a table for your paper in Word®, or that same table for your LaTeX paper.

Bayesian econometrics

Stata does econometrics. Stata does Bayesian statistics. Stata 17 combines both to do Bayesian econometrics.

PyStata—Python and Stata

PyStata allows you to invoke Stata directly from any standalone Python environment and to call Python directly from Stata, thus, greatly expanding Stata’s Python integration features.

Jupyter Notebook with Stata

Now, you can invoke Stata and Mata from Jupyter Notebooks with the IPython (interactive Python) kernel, meaning you can combine the capabilities of both Python and Stata in a single environment to make your work easily reproducible and shareable with others.

Making Stata faster

Stata values accuracy and speed. There is often a tradeoff between the two, but Stata strives to give users the best of both worlds. We are continuously optimizing and improving our routines to utilize modern computing power and algorithms so that Stata runs even faster.

Bayesian multilevel modeling

Multilevel models are used by many disciplines to model group-specific effects, which may arise at different levels of hierarchy. Think of regions, states nested within regions, and companies nested within states within regions. Or think hospitals, doctors nested within hospitals, and patients nested within doctors nested within hospitals.
