What is Stata?

Stata is an advanced, fully programmable statistical package with complete statistical, graphical, and data-management capabilities.

Getting Stata

UVa participates in Stata Corporation Prof+.  Under this program Stata software is purchased online and ships directly to you.  For details and ordering, for faculty and staff see

Stata Intercooled, version 17, is also available, for students only, on Remote Desktop.

Please note: The University owns 55 concurrent users. These apply to both computer labs AND Remote Desktop usage. Users trying to access Stata may experience waiting periods for a license to open. The Stata Prof+ for students provides some very inexpensive options to have Stata on your own computer. You may either purchase a copy or even rent a copy for 6 months or a year.

If you have a very large dataset that you wish to analyze using Stata MP, there is an installation of Stata 16 MP in Brown SEL i-043. Please email to make an appointment to use Stata MP.
