Stat/Transfer

Since 1986, Stat/Transfer has provided fast, reliable, and convenient data transfer for thousands of users, worldwide. Stat/Transfer knows about statistical data–it handles missing data, value and variable labels and all of the other details that are necessary to move as much information as is possible from one file format to another.

Stat/Transfer provides both an easy-to-use menu interface and a powerful batch facility. Whether you are moving a simple table from Excel to GAUSS or moving megabytes of survey data between statistical packages, Stat/Transfer will save you time and money.

Stat/Transfer Makes Your Data Instantly Usable.

Stat/Transfer is designed to simplify the transfer of statistical data between different programs.

Data generated by one program is often needed in another context, either for analysis, for cleaning and correction, or for presentation. However, not only the data must be transferred, but in addition it generally must be re-described for each program with additional information, such as variable names, missing values and value and variable labels. This process is not only time-consuming, it is error-prone. For those in possession of data sets with many variables, it represents a serious impediment to the use of more than one program.

Stat/Transfer removes this barrier by providing an extremely fast, reliable and automatic way to move data.

Stat/Transfer will automatically read statistical data in the internal format of one of the supported programs and will then transfer as much of the information as is present and appropriate to the internal format of another.

Stat/Transfer preserves all of the precision in your data by storing it internally in double precision format. However, on output, it will, where possible, automatically minimize the size of your output data set by intelligently choosing data storage types that are only as large as necessary to preserve the input precision. Stat/Transfer also allows precise and easy manual control over the storage format of your output variables, in case this is necessary.

In addition to converting the formats of variables, Stat/Transfer also processes missing values automatically.

Stat/Transfer can save hours and even days of manual labor, while at the same time eliminating error. Furthermore, you gain this speed and accuracy without losing flexibility, since Stat/Transfer allows you to select just the variables and cases you want to transfer.

In addition to the standard Windows interface, a command processor on Windows and on UNIX allows you to run a transfer in batch mode. This makes it straightforward to set up fully automatic batch procedures for repetitive tasks.
