Stata is a complete, integrated statistical software package that provides everything you need for data analysis, data management, and graphics.

Common Problems

Stata not executing final command

If you find that Stata is not executing the final command in your .do file, then try adding a newline at the end of the file.

I/O error writing .dta file

When running a Stata job in BlueBEAR you may get this error:

I/O error writing .dta file - Usually such I/O errors are caused by the disk or file system being full.

In that case the following should fix it, added before you execute stata-mp (or stata, or stata-se):

export STATATMP="/scratch/${SLURM_JOBID}"; mkdir ${STATATMP}

This tells stata to write its temporary files into a new, job-specific folder in the /scratch filestore - instead of into /tmp
