At the risk of prolonging this slightly, several places that I think Stata has great advantages are in the handling of 1) by groups, 2) better explicit subscripting, and 3) handling and manipulation of longitudinal (or panel data) in the long format rather than the wide format. Although it has been a number of years since I used SAS, I still remember age1, age2, age 3, age(n). This is all so much easier in Stata. Do loop with lags and missing observations and data still give me panic attacks.
