Computations for this course will be illustrated using STATA, and those with access to this program should use it for the work of this class. Other statistical packages, however, may be suitable, and students who are thoroughly familiar with other statistical software (such as S, SAS, Minitab, or SPSS) may elect to use those packages for the coursework.

How to get access to Stata

STATA is available to the University public on the Windows computers at the Central User Site ("Usite"), located in Harper Library in Wieboldt 310. In addition, STATA will soon be added to computers in the Regenstein and Crerar clusters. Those with accounts on the SSPPCC ("SPC-squared") facilities also have access via on the SPC machine.
