Can I get a University discount?

University discount is primarily meant for Stata users who teach students or who themselves are students. Universities, university hospitals, and colleges receive university discount. Customers from university hospitals need to provide the name of the university to which the hospital is affiliated.

In addition to university discount, it is possible for universities to order Stata licenses for students at extra discounted prices. Some universities have signed special GradPlan agreements with Metrika that allow them to buy Stata at special discounted prices. These include Aarhus University, Aarhus University Hospital, Karolinska Institute, University of Southern Denmark, and Odense University Hospital .


Governmental agencies and private persons do not receive university discount (See Stata for other users). A person with double affiliation to a university and to a governmental agency, receives university discount only if s(he) provides the university’s address as the invoice and the delivery address. This applies also to graduate students. Research institutes without a university address do not receive university discount even if some of their researchers supervise graduate students.

How does the product pricing work?

If the product has different unitary prices depending on the number of users ordered you should start ordering from user No. 1 and follow the user intervals until you reach the total amount of users desired (see example below). If you want to combine in one order different Stata flavors or to order a network license expansion, please send us a quote request at metrika@metrika.se.

EXAMPLE A (Order for 30 Stata IC licenses):

If the product does not have any volume discount, which means that the unitary price for the product is always the same regardless the number of units you buy, just fill in the amount in the field for quantity and click buy or add to cart.

About Stata

Should I buy Stata/IC, Stata/SE, or Stata/MP?

Stata/MP is the fastest and largest version of Stata. Virtually any current computer can take advantage of the advanced multiprocessing of Stata/MP. This includes the Intel i3, i5, i7, Xeon, and Celeron, and AMD multi-core chips. On dual-core chips, Stata/MP runs 40% faster overall and 72% faster where it matters, on the time-consuming estimation commands. With more than two cores or processors, Stata/MP is even faster. 

Stata/MP, Stata/SE, and Stata/IC all run on any machine, but Stata/MP runs faster. You can purchase a Stata/MP license for up to the number of cores on your machine (maximum is 64). For example, if your machine has eight cores, you can purchase a Stata/MP license for eight cores, four cores, or two cores.

Stata/MP can also analyze more data than any other flavor of Stata. Stata/MP can analyze 10 to 20 billion observations given the current largest computers, and is ready to analyze up to 281 trillion observations once computer hardware catches up. 

Stata/SE, Stata/IC, and Small Stata differ only in the dataset size that each can analyze. Stata/SE and Stata/MP can fit models with more independent variables than Stata/IC (up to 10,998). Stata/SE can analyze up to 2 billion observations.

Stata/IC allows datasets with as many as 2,047 variables and 2 billion observations. Stata/IC can have at most 798 right-hand-side variables in a model. 

Small Stata is limited to analyzing datasets with a maximum of 99* variables and 1,200* observations. Small Stata can have at most 98 right-hand-side variables in a model.

All the above flavors have the same complete set of features and include PDF documentation.

*Number of variables and observations allowed by Small Stata includes any additional variables or observations generated during statistical computations.

Should I buy one Stata network license or several single user licenses?

The price is the same for purchasing N single-user licenses at the same time as for purchasing one network license for N users. The minimum size network license that may be purchased is a 2-user. The size of a network license can be increased at any time at a reduced charge. If you currently own a 5-user network license, the cost of adding another user would be the cost of adding user number 6. Single user licenses, but not network licenses, can be installed on home computers, in addition to workplace computers. If you have purchased several single-user licenses of Stata, you may elect to upgrade only some of the licenses and wait to upgrade the other at a later time. With a network license, there is only one license, so it cannot be broken up.

How do I upgrade an existing license?
Upgrading an older version of Stata always is possible, and the price for doing so is low compared to the cost of upgrading other comparable software. Upgrading is best done in the web shop where you also find the current prices. When upgrading you must include information about the serial number(s) of your current license(s). In Stata, you find the serial number of your license by clicking on "Help - About Stata".

Are Stata's prices one-time charges or are there annual fees?

Most Stata licenses are perpetual, that is, they are not limited in time. When a new version of Stata is released in the future you can choose to continue to use your current license at no charge or to pay for upgrade. The price of upgrade is always considerably lower than new purchases.

If you prefer, you can also choose to buy maintenance at the same time as the license.

Maintenance is an annual fee that includes future upgrades of the license. For larger workplaces there is also the possibility to lease Stata. A Stata lease is an N simultaneous-user license that expires after one year. If a new release of Stata occurs during this year, the new release is automatically sent to the lease holder at no additional charge.

With maintenance or a lease license, software expenses becomes predictable and you will always be using the latest version of Stata. Although we cannot promise to never raise prices, the prices to renew leases and maintenance vary mostly with the exchange rate between the US dollar and the rest of currencies availble at StataNordic.com.

Universities also have the option of buying site licenses that allows all their faculty and/or students unlimited access to Stata. Please contact us at metrika@metrika.se for further details about Stata site licenses.

What are Stata Maintenance Plans?

If you want to always keep Stata up to date you can add a maintenance plan to your order. With a maintenance plan, for a fixed annual fee you will always have access to the latest version of Stata. You get free upgrades to major releases whenever they are made generally available (from the purchase date to the expiration date of the contract). Maintenance charges are yearly, and maintenance may be purchased only when you buy a new license or upgrade an existing one. With maintenance plans, software expenses become predictable and you will always be using the latest version of Stata.

What is included in the documentation?
Each license comes with a DVD that contains the software and all manuals in PDF format; all in all 20 manuals with over 11.000 pages. In addition you receive a printed Installation Manual.
