difficult to say one way or the other if you have not used statistical packages. i have used statistica, arcus, spss and stata, roughly in that chronological order over the past 6 years. i spent longest using statistica and spss, but since 2000 i have used stata. i spent longest learning stata (v7 - because it was interactive command driven rather than point and click) but now, i would not go back to statistica or arcus or spss. when stata was v7, i sometimes used spss for graphics but with much improved graphics in stata v8, i am quite contented now with this one package, which is also point and click.

i think most package allows you to download a trial version - give it a go and see what would suit your needs. i do not know about r, sas, prism, statdirect or others.

Dear all,

        Can any one give me an idea why Stata should be preferred for
analyzing all sort of survey data?
        What are its superiority to other available packages?

        Any response / comments will be appreciated.
        Thank you.
