Stata and SQLite

Stata and SQLite

For those familiar with SQL, Stata’s lack of SQL support (apart from ODBC) can be perceived as a problem. However, Stata’s integration with Python offers a solution. Here are examples with one Stata script for exporting data to an SQLite database and another one for querying an existing SQLite database. In each case, just a few lines of coding are required. First, to read a Stata data file and export the data in the form of an SQLite database, this code can be used.

In Stata, this code reads and queries an SQLite database.
