What’s New in Stata 17?

Stata is a general-purpose software package for statistics, data management, and graphics. The recently updated Stata 17 provides 29 additional features, including new statistical algorithms for Bayesian statistical analyses, interval-censored Cox models, multivariate meta-analysis, and advanced lasso techniques. 

The reimagined table and etable commands now allow for standard and customizable tables for the web, Microsoft Word, and LaTeX. Notably, Stata 17 includes a collect command that automatically stores results from an analysis, and those results can be displayed in publication-quality tables using etable. After creating a table, easily export it into your report. 

If you have Stata 17 installed and are ready to download and try out these newly released features, open Stata 17 and type “update all.” To view the list of new features and changes, type “help whatsnew.” 

Stata/SE is available at no additional cost to faculty, staff, and students at UTK, UTC, UTSI, and UTHSC for installation on university-owned and personally owned Windows, Macs, and Linux computers.
