This is for StataCorp to answer. (Not "Stata Corp".)
But many readers, especially those outside the United States, will want an explanation -- Small Business Innovation Research -- and a URL www.sbir.gov. And perhaps another explanation: NIH = (U.S.) National Institutes of Health and another URL www.nih.gov. Please remember the list is global -- geographically and in terms of members' interests.

Sorry for being negative about this thread, but if there is one issue that I
could not care less about, it is the number of grants to StataCorp. David did not specify what it is that stirs his interest there, but maybe he will elaborate...

I'm installed at a medical school, and we survive on NIH funding. So
it's common ground. It means StataCorp is very serious about biostatistics and being creative in applications within this discipline.

I see 4 NIH grants since 2003 to Stata in the CRISP database (2 to
Drukker, 2 to Gutierrez). One SBIR grant went to creating StataMP! -Dave On Dec 3, 2008, at 7:13 PM, David Airey wrote: > I'm installed at a medical school, and we survive on NIH funding.

In reply to this post by Airey, David C
SBIRs are a common vehicle for small software developers (and Stata is
small... at least compared to SAS). And if not for that money, StataCorp would have to either charge more per license or have fewer features developed. So that's at least somewhat important information. And yes, a lot of biostatisticians in the US has majority (sometimes 80% or 90%) of their funding from grants. Expansions or contractions of the federal US grant funding are the biggest pieces of news for people in those positions...

A friend from grad school is a numerical analysis guy at Sandia---they're waiting with bated breath to know who the next SecEnergy and various staff will be.... (Baited breath is for fish.) Ditto for other areas. I am on hard money but things like software purchases often depend on soft money, so knowing that StataCorp depends on it to some extent too is useful info. StataMP seems like a worthwhile product for grant money. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ |
