Stata is a general-purpose statistical analysis package created and maintained by StataCorp LP. Its capabilities include a broad range of statistical analyses, plus data management, graphics, simulations, and custom programming. For more, see StataCorp's Stata features.

Stata is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux. Its file formats are platform-independent to allow exchange of data sets between users of different operating systems.

Each version of Stata is released with four builds:

  • Stata/MP: For multiprocessor computers (the fastest version of Stata)
  • Stata/SE: For large data sets
  • Stata/IC: The standard version; for moderate data sets
  • Small Stata: For small data sets (for educational purchase only)

For a feature comparison of Stata's builds, see StataCorp's Which Stata is right for me? For a list of Stata support resources available through StataCorp, see Stata resources and support.

At Indiana University:

  • Stata/SE is available on all Windows computers in the Student Technology Centers (STCs) at IU Bloomington and IUPUI.
  • To see which of IU's research supercomputers have Stata installed, log into HPC everywhere, select HPC Applications, and then enter stata into the "Software Search" field.
  • This software is also available via IUanyWare.
