Stata maintenance

Many customers prefer a predictable annual cost. When you purchase a perpetual license*, you receive one year of maintenance, which is renewable annually. When you keep your maintenance current, you will receive the next release of Stata automatically and without an additional charge.

Benefits of maintenance

  • Predictable. You can budget for your annual cost. You will know when it is due. And you will not be met with unexpected upgrade costs.
  • Updates and Security. You are ensured continued access to updates including software enhancements, bug fixes, and security patches.
  • Support. You will enjoy uninterrupted access to technical support from a dedicated staff of expert Stata programmers and statisticians.
  • Access. You will be of the first to be notified of new releases of Stata. You will automatically receive your upgraded new version of Stata for free — no additional paperwork or stress.
  • Priority. You will receive your licenses quickly. You will have priority access to new features.
  • Convenient. You will receive timely reminders that your maintenance period is about to expire.
  • Ownership. A Stata perpetual license will not expire. The license will remain in your ownership with no interruptions in access, even if the maintenance term is not renewed. If you decide to not renew your maintenance, upgrades to new versions of Stata must be purchased separately.

*Student perpetual licenses do not include maintenance. If you own a student perpetual license and would like to upgrade to a new version of Stata, you may purchase an upgrade separately.
