Windows in Stata

When Stata is launched, there are several windows that can be used while working with the program:

  • Command - provides an input area for entering Stata command statements.
  • Results - shows the commands entered along with their results. (If "more" appears at the bottom, press Enter to continue scrolling the results or ‘q' to quit.)
  • Review - displays a history of the most recent commands entered. Highlighting a command here will make it appear in the Command window.
  • Variables - lists the variables contained in the current data set. Only one data set at a time can be current in Stata. Highlighting a variable in this window will make it appear in the Command window.
  • Data Editor - displays the current data set in spreadsheet format. The data editor can also be used when cutting and pasting data to and from other spreadsheet applications like Excel.
  • Graph - displays the results of graphics associated command statements.
