Hi,

I work for a polling firm, and we're new to Stata. We've done most of our work in SPSS for almost a decade, now, and have developed highly idiosyncratic ways of using macros and Python to create our primary products for our customers: banner books, daily partials, regressions and various modeling projects. Call this the first round of requests for information. 

1. Does anyone on the list use Stata for these purposes? 
2. If so, is it standalone or in conjunction with other software?
3. If in conjunction with other software, which other sofware do you use and how do you divvy up the responsibilities?
4. Are there manuals or FAQ's available on how to transition from a primarily SPSS shop to an integrated or Stata alone shop for these products?

Thanks in advance,

Dheeraj
