Stata in large-scale development
AbstractI will present and discuss the development of the large software project ADePT, which combines the computation kernel of Stata and the user interface written in C#. ADePT is a software platform for applied economic analysis. It is used widely in the World Bank and in many research institutions around the world to produce a standardized set of tables and graphs in different areas of applied economic analysis. Currently, ADePT includes modules on poverty, labor market, inequality, gender, education, social protection, and health. I will demonstrate various stages of the project development, discuss the software routines (both Stata and C#) developed for interaction between ADePT and Stata, and demonstrate various tools we developed in Stata and C#. Many of these routines are currently available for Stata users.
