Also, UCLA has a handy guide to SPSS/Stata equivalents:

http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/faq/spss_command_to_stata.htm

If you are a SAS person, see

http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/faq/sas_command_to_stata.htm

For OLS regression, I have more or less parallel discussions of SPSS and Stata at

http://www3.nd.edu/~rwilliam/stats1/OLS-SPSS.pdf

http://www3.nd.edu/~rwilliam/stats2/OLS-Stata9.pdf

I used to be all SPSS and now I am pretty much all Stata. A lot of old SPSS notes have been moved to optional appendices in my course notes. However, I am wondering whether I should keep SPSS around at all, because I can't count on old SPSS commands to always work the same as they used to. I have this old SPSS program that does some major data manipulations and the stupid thing is giving me errors now. Eventually I have to either figure out how SPSS syntax has changed or rewrite the program using Stata. Stata is much, much, much better about maintaining backward compatibility.

Dear All,

In STATA (version 11), is there an equivalent to the SPSS command
"aggregate" please?

Many thanks in advance for any advice.

Sincerely,
