I have worked in SAS since 2010. I have done that only for my clients because, in my humble opinion, this is not the best language for expressing original statistical ideas. It is pretty decent for running standard statistical analyses involving regression, shrinkage methods, generalized linear models, panel data, classification, cluster analysis, data compression, time series analysis, Monte Carlo, neural nets, etc. And that is what I used SAS for. I perform complete analysis for my clients if necessary. I also schedule tutorials, where we go over various SAS functionality slowly and steadily.


I have worked in Stata since 2009, using the package for tutorials and my own needs. I like Stata for its treatment of survey data, extensive robust estimation capabilities and flexibility for building mixed effects models for panel data. I also use Stata regularly for missing data imputation, data management, linear and non-linear regression, survival analysis, simultaneous equations and such. I am happy to help with whatever assignments you are working on, either on the tutorials basis or on the project basis.
