RE: st: Stata vs. SPSS
I am also a Mac user and I currently have STATA and have not experienced
problems in the OS X
environment. The only problem that you'll have is when importing a file via
ODBC, described below.
" ODBC, an acronym for Open DataBase Connectivity, is a standardized set of
function calls that can be
used to access data stored in both relational and nonrelational database
Currently, Stata's odbc command is only available for Windows."
Sorry I can't really comment on the difference in SPSS and STATA.
