Stata 12 Announced

We are pleased to announce a new version of Stata: Stata 12. You can order it today, it starts shipping on July 25, and you can find out about it at www.stata.com/stata12/.

Here are the highlights of what’s new:

There are other things that are new, too. Things like functions for Tukey’s Studentized range and Dunnett’s multiple range, baseline odds for logistic regression, truncated count-data regressions, probability predictions, robust and cluster-robust SEs for fixed-effects Poisson regression, and the like under General Statistics. Or under Survey Data, support for SEM, bootstrap and successive difference replicate (SDR) weights, goodness of fit after binary models, coefficient of variation, and more. Or under Panel Data, probability predictions, multiple imputation support, and more. Or under Survival Data, a goodness-of-fit statistic that is robust to censoring. Or PDF export of results and graphs.

We could go on, but you get the idea. We think Stata 12 is worth a look.

    will -cluster- accept factor variables in Stata 12?nwill the creation of tables to be more customisable (such as SPSS custom tables)?

    I just installed stata 12 on my mac laptop.  For some reason it closes unexpectedly every time I try to open a do file in the do-file window.  THe only way I can work on do files is to open in word, then copy paste the whole thing to a “new” file in the do-file editor.

    Help!  I’m sure there is a simple fix or setting I need to change, but I do not know what it is.

    Thanks in advance.

    Have used stata 12 on our communal (fast) machine to create some datasets because its quicker. But can’t seem to open them using STATA 11.2 on my own machine? Surely, it was not designed this way????

  • Make sure you have installed the latest update for Stata 11 (type -update all- and then -update swap-).  The latest update for Stata 11 added support for reading Stata 12 data files.

    Have just upgraded to Stata 12, mainly in order to use SEM for models similar to ACE twin study models. I can’t seem to figure out whether the SEM handles binary observed variables, however. Mplus handles them easily, but I would prefer to use Stata. Can Stata accommodates binary variables in SEM? If so, please point me in the right direction in terms of how to do this. If not, I would hope there would be plans to update the software soon, since not having this capability is a big limitation.

    And – did you succeed in doing ACE models in STATA with binary data? Just wanted to check before I start trying myself! bw Jim
