Statistics with Stata

Stata is a powerful statistical and data management software package. For more details, go to: www.stata.com. The distributor in Australia is Survey Design and Analysis, based in the ACT: www.surveydesign.com.au

Listed below are a number of Stata programs (ado files) and related materials which are freely available for download. These programs are also available from the SSC archives in Boston, and downloadable within Stata using the ssc command (type "help ssc" inside Stata for more information). In addition, this site has some other materials not available from the SSC archives: some JEdit code and some materials for the -tabout- program, including a tutorial. There is also an article which illustrates how to do basic programming with matrices.

tabout : is a Stata user command to export publication quality cross-tabulations to a text file or to other applications, such as Word and Excel.
