About Stata

About the software

Stata is a general-purpose statistical software package. Stata's capabilities include:

  • Data management
  • Statistical analysis
  • Graphics
  • Simulations
  • Custom programming

The University has two licenses for Stata:

  • Stata/SE, which is installed on all IT Services managed PCs, including classrooms. Also available on the VDS, staff and student.
  • Stata/MP, which is only available to staff and students from departments within the Faculty of Social Sciences.

Stata/MP is a high performance version of Stata/SE that we deploy to classrooms, supporting larger datasets and running faster than Stata/SE. Stata/MP has been purchased in response to the teaching requirements of departments within the Faculty of Social Sciences.

Please see the Obtaining the software tab for more details.

Students

Classrooms

Stata/SE is installed on all IT Services classroom PCs. Also available on the student VDS.

Home use

Stata/SE is not available for home use but is available from the student VDS.

Students may purchase Stata direct from Timberlake at a reduced cost: you'll need to provide proof of your student status (ie a copy of your University card). Find out more: Stata Students

For students that are enrolled in a department within the Faculty of Social Sciences, a Stata/MP licence can be downloaded onto their personal PCs. Access to download and activate the software is available by signing into this restricted link. Students must not share the details with anyone who is not eligible for a Stata/MP licence, as this will be a breach of the licence terms and conditions of use.
