STATA Licenses/Manuals Now Available for Purchase Through SSCC

SSCC has worked out an arrangement with Stata Corporation which allows us to stock STATA and STAT/TRANSFER software and manuals. This means you (and anyone else on the UW-Madison Campus) can get your software and/or manuals very quickly and cheaper than STATA's usual Academic discounted price. Here's how the arrangement works: You call Stata Corporation (800-782-8272) to place and pay for your order. Then once Stata Corporation receives payment, they fax us the order information and you can pick up your materials from Sandi Lenz in Social Science 4405.

Prices are as follows:

Small Stata software and Getting Started manual                  $55.00
