Stata 16 announced

Stata 16 is now available! Stata 16 is a big release and is filled with many new features for economists, statisticians and researchers practising in a wide variety of disciplines including economics, public health, biostatistics, sociology, political science, management, finance, psychology and education.

New features include:

  • Lasso — Model selection and prediction alongside cutting-edge inferential methods.
  • Truly reproducible reporting — Create customized Word, HTML, PDF, and Excel files with Stata results and graphs.
  • Meta-analysis — Powerful, yet easy to use, tools for summarizing, evaluating, and testing results from multiple studies.
  • Frames—multiple datasets in memory — Load datasets simultaneously into frames. Link related frames. Multitask. Record results separately. Make code run faster.
  • Choice models — Choice models are easy to fit and hard to interpret. Not anymore. Now you can truly interpret your results.
  • Python integration — Take advantage of any Python package from within Stata. Call machine-learning packages, scrape data, perform image recognition, and more.
  • New in Bayesian analysis — Multiple chains. Gelman–Rubin convergence diagnostics. Bayesian predictions. Posterior predictive p-values. And more.
  • Panel-data ERMs — ERMs account for endogenous covariates, sample selection, and treatment all at the same time. And now add panel data to that list.
  • Import data from SAS and SPSS — Your colleagues give you data in another format. You want to analyze the data in Stata.
  • Nonparametric series regression — Not sure how to specify your model? Linear or nonlinear? Cubic or quadratic? Try nonparametric series regression.
