COVID-19 Resource Hub

Many colleges, universities, organizations, and businesses have had to transition classes and other operations to online platforms and are asking employees to work remotely. That means they need to be able to use their software even if they don't have access to their usual network, lab, or work computer. We are committed to finding solutions so that everyone can continue using his or her Stata license without disruption, even under these new working arrangements.
