Mata is a full-blown programming language that compiles what you type into bytecode, optimizes it, and executes it fast.Though you don't need to program to use Stata, it is comforting to know that a fast and complete matrix programming language is an integral part of Stata. Mata is both an interactive environment for manipulating matrices and a full development environment that can produce compiled and optimized code. It includes special features for processing panel data, performs operations on real or complex matrices, provides complete support for object-oriented programming, and is fully integrated with every aspect of Stata.

**We don't just write statistical methods, we validate them. **The results you see from a Stata estimator rest on comparisons with other estimators, Monte-Carlo simulations of consistency and coverage, and extensive testing by our statisticians. Every Stata we ship has passed a certification suite that includes 2.3 million lines of testing code that produces 4.3 million lines of output. We certify every number and piece of text from those 4.3 million lines of code. Technical supportStata technical support is free to registered users. And, this is a case of getting much more than you pay for.

We have a dedicated staff of expert Stata programmers and Statisticians to answer your technical questions. From tricky data management solutions to getting your graph looking just right. From explaining a robust standard error to specifying your multilevel model. We have your answers.

Stata is so programmable that developers and users add new features every day to respond to the growing demands of today's researchers. With Stata's Internet capabilities, new features and official updates can be installed over the Internet with a single click.

Stata's data-management features give you complete control of all types of data.

You can combine and reshape datasets, manage variables, and collect statistics across groups or replicates. You can work with byte, integer, long, float, double, and string variables (including BLOBs and strings up to 2 billion characters). Stata also has advanced tools for managing specialised data such as survival/duration data, time-series data, panel/longitudinal data, categorical data, multiple-imputation data, and survey data.

You can point and click to create a custom graph, or you can write scripts to produce hundreds or thousands of graphs in a reproducible manner. Export graphs to EPS or TIF for publication, to PNG or SVG for the web, or to PDF for viewing. With the integrated Graph Editor you click to change anything about your graph or to add titles, notes, lines, arrows, and text.

- Distributional plots
- Time-series graphs,
- Survival plots
- Contour plots

When it comes time to perform your analyses or understand the methods you are using, Stata does not leave you high and dry or ordering books to learn every detail.

Each of our data management features is fully explained, and documented, and shown in practice on real examples. Each estimator is fully documented and includes several examples on real data, with real discussions of how to interpret the results. The examples give you the data so you can work along in Stata and even extend the analyses. We give you Quick Starts for every feature showing some of the most common uses. Want even more detail, our Methods and Formulas sections provide the specifics of what is being computed and our References point you to even more information.

Stata is a big package and so has lots of documentation – over 14,000 pages in 27 volumes. But don't worry, type **help** *my topic* and Stata will search its keywords, indices, and even community-contributed packages to bring you everything you need to know about *your topic*. Everything is available right within Stata.

Stata will run on Windows, Mac and Linux/Unix computers; however, licenses are not platform specific.

That means if you have a Mac laptop and a Windows desktop, you don't need two separate licenses to run Stata. You can install your Stata license on any of the supported platforms. Stata datasets, programs, and other data can be shared across platforms without translation. You can also quickly and easily import datasets from other statistical packages, spreadsheets, and databases.

All of the following flavours of Stata have the same complete set of commands and features and manuals included as PDF documentation within Stata.

Stata/MP is the fastest and largest version of Stata. Virtually any current computer can take advantage of the advanced multiprocessing of Stata/MP. This includes the Intel i3, i5, i7, i9, Xeon, and Celeron, and AMD multi-core chips. On dual-core chips, Stata/MP runs 40% faster overall and 72% faster where it matters, on the time-consuming estimation commands. With more than two cores or processors, Stata/MP is even faster.

Stata/MP is faster—much faster. Stata/MP lets you analyse data in one-half to two- thirds of the time compared with Stata/SE on inexpensive dual-core desktops and laptops and in one-quarter to one-half the time on quad-core desktops and laptops.

Stata/MP runs even faster on multiprocessor servers. Stata/MP supports up to 64 processors/cores.

Speed is often most crucial when performing computationally intense estimation procedures. A few of Stata’s estimation procedures, including linear regression, are nearly perfectly parallelized, meaning they run twice as fast on two cores, four times as fast on four cores, eight times as fast on eight cores, and so on. Some estimation commands can be parallelized more than others. Taken at the median, estimation commands runs 1.9 times faster on two cores, 3.1 times faster on four cores, and 4.3 times faster on eight cores.

Stata/MP is 100% compatible other versions of with Stata. Analyses do not have to be reformulated or modified in any way to obtain Stata/MP’s speed improvements.

Stata/MP is available for the following operating systems:

- Windows (32- and 64-bit processors);
- macOS (64-bit Intel processors);
- Linux (32- and 64-bit processors);

To run Stata/MP, you can use a desktop computer with a dual-core or quad-core processor, or you can use a server with multiple processors. Whether a computer has separate processors or one processor with multiple cores makes no difference. More processors or cores makes Stata/MP run faster.

For more advice on purchasing/upgrading to Stata/MP or for hardware queries, please contact our sales team.

Stata/SE and Stata/IC differ only in the dataset size that each can analyse. Stata/SE and Stata/MP can fit models with more independent variables than Stata/IC (up to 10,998). Stata/SE can analyse up to 2 billion observations.

Stata/IC allows datasets with as many as 2,048 variables. The maximum number of observations is 2.14 billion. Stata/IC can have at most 798 independent variables in a model.
