Stata 17

Stata is the complete package for data analysis, data management and graphics

Stata is a complete and powerful statistical package intended for researchers in all disciplines. You get everything you need in one comprehensive package. Thanks to the 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.

You have hundreds of statistical tools and methods available. These include everything from basic to advanced statistical methods and analysis. It 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 the IC edition has been renamed to BE (Basic Edition) in version 17.

Customizable tables

Create both standard and customized tables, whether you want a table for the web, a table for your paper in Word®, or that table for your LaTeX paper.

Bayesian econometrics

You can do econometrics and Bayesian statistics, and combines both to do Bayesian econometrics.

PyStata – Python and Stata

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

Jupyter Notebook

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 modelling

Many disciplines use multilevel models 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.

And lots of more new features…
