Stata is a statistical package that is capable of data management, statistical analysis, graphics, simulations, regression, and custom programming. It is a popular choice for biomedicine research, but is also widely used in sociology, economics, and political science.
Stata can be installed on staff and student machines by visiting AppsAnywhere. The University currently only holds four user licences for Stata, so there may be a waitlist for use of this particular programme.
