Stata is an integrated statistical package that provides extensive functionality for data analysis, data management, and graphics.

 

To use Stata you must be on the Stata user list. Contact MSI Help, help@msi.umn.edu, to be added to the Stata user list. We have two Stata licenses. We ask that all users use the calendaring program to sign up for time on Stata. If someone is signed up in the spot that you want, use a different calendar. Up to two users can sign up for the same time slot, one user per calendar. Please specify your name on the calendar. You can use the following links to see the Stata calendars and reserve a license:

Stata Calendar for License One                                                                                                
Stata Calendar for License Two

Follow the instructions at https://www.msi.umn.edu/calendar/instruction.html to add a reservation to the calendar.
