Educational single-user maintenance renewal

Maintenance is an annual or biennial purchase that ensures you maintain access to the current version of Stata software. Maintenance includes access to StataNow. To renew your maintenance agreement, choose the edition of Stata (Stata/BE—formerly Stata/IC, Stata/SE, Stata/MP (2-core), Stata/MP (4-core)) that you currently have.

You must be affiliated with a degree-granting institution or reside in a developing economy to receive educational pricing.



For mid-sized datasets.


For larger datasets.


Stata/MP: The fastest edition of Stata (for dual-core and multicore computers) that can also analyze more data than any other edition of Stata.


Faster & for the largest datasets.

Speed comparisons

Stata is fast.

Stata/MP is the fastest edition of Stata and handles the largest datasets. All modern computers can take advantage of the advanced multiprocessing of Stata/MP. This means

  • Stata/MP2 runs almost two times faster than Stata/SE
  • Stata/MP4 runs almost four times faster than Stata/SE
  • Higher MP licenses run even faster
