PanelWhiz, John P. Haisken-DeNew of RWI Essen, Germany
- PanelWhiz is a Stata/SE 9.2 (or better) addition for using the
large-scale panel datasets German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) and
Australian HILDA and will soon support other datasets.
PanelWhiz adds a collection of commands to Stata that allow you,
through a menu in Stata, to directly select variables,
observations, etc., and automatically create data retrievals on your
World Health Organization software and ado-files, WHO, Switzerland
- Stata ado-files for WHO child growth standards that compute associated z-scores for children’s growth using the 2005 WHO reference population.
Innovations for Poverty Action, USA
- Stata modules for data collection and analysis developed at IPA.
International Center for Equity in Health|Pelotas, Brazil
- Presents equiplot.ado. Created to improve the presentation of equity data. The command allows the user to choose the order of the Y axis, to change the scale of the X axis, the size of the dots, and uses the variable labels for the legend.
Methods and Data, Frederick J. Boehmke, University of Iowa, USA
- Stata programs and utilities including programs for duration models with selection.
Stata programs by Stanislav Kolenikov, University of Missouri,
- A large collection of Stata programs by Stas Kolenikov.

and Presenting Statistical Results, ReLogit: Rare Events Logistic
Stata programs for generalized linear measurement error
- Programs by R. J. Carroll, J. Hardin, and H. Schmiediche, fit
generalized linear models when one or more covariates are measured with
programs for Venn Diagrams, Population Pyramids, etc., Denmark
- programs by Jens M. Lauritsen to implement Venn diagrams, population
Stata programs by Tony Brady, Sealed Envelope Ltd.
- Programs for Hosmer–Lemeshow goodness-of-fit test, conversion
of regression output into near–publication quality tables, time
utilities to translate strings in 24-hour clock HH:MM format to elapsed
times and back again, tabulate longitudinal data at the cluster level,
count clusters in longitudinal data, etc.
programs and links, Biostatistical Resources, USA
- Programs useful for genetic epidemiologists.
Stata programs from Jean-Benoit Hardouin, University of Nantes
- Programs to analyze quality-of-life scales: selection of
items to form undimensional scales, validation of a supposed structure
of the items, traces of the items, modeling, graphical validation,
tests for Rasch model, and other tools.
Stata programs from Dr. Gareth Ambler, University College, UK
- Programs for Hosmer-Lemeshow test, penalized logistic regression, as well as
generalized additive models, and a postestimation routine.
- Stata Journal
- Stata programs regularly accompany articles in the Stata Journal.
These programs are typically most useful when you have access to the
associated arcticle, but they often have online Stata help and can be
installed regardless. See in particular
Journal Software in the
Stata Journal FAQ.
- STB mirror sites
- Prior to the Stata Journal, Stata
Press published the Stata Technical
Bulletin (STB). Associated with every issue of the STB was
software adding new features to Stata. The best way to install these
programs is directly
from Stata; it can be done with a few mouse clicks.
