Given the popularity of a handful of statistical platforms (e.g., Stata, SPSS, R, SAS, etc.), it is sometimes helpful to import code written in one platform into another. A recent post on the Stata Forum list makes just such an inquiry. The first response (from Prof. Richard Williams, Notre Dame, Sociology), emphasizes GNU PSPP software which has the virtue of being free. For those willing to spend $179 (or only $49 for a two-year student license), however, I've used StatTransfer for years. And their are certainly other products on the market as well. Regardless of the solution that one selects, existing products make migrating among various statistical platforms seamless.
