The Penn Libraries offer the Virtual Computer Lab for students to access software applications normally accessible in Library computer labs. Software includes in-demand titles that students can’t easily access by other means.
The Penn Libraries vLab provides a Windows 10 virtual PC desktop with SPSS and Stata/IC available.
Appointments are available with our statistics software consultant for R, Stata, and SPSS. Make an appointment via the Penn Libraries Technology Consultation Appointment page : select "Stata, R and Other Statistical Software" for available appointments.
Selected modules from the UCLA Stat Consulting Group's Stata 11 tutorials.
Stata has both command line and point-and-click interfaces, with an intuitive syntax.
It comes in different flavors based on capabilities: Stata/SE (up to 32,767 variables) and Stata/IC (up to 2,047 variables).
The Stata community has developed numerous ado files that add functionality to Stata. Below are listed ado files that import data into Stata automatically.
