Statalist began as a discussion list in 1994. After twenty years, in March 2014, it relaunched as a web forum. It currently is hosted at the Harvard School of Public Health. According to site literature, "Statalist is a forum where Stata users from experts to neophytes maintain a lively dialogue about all things statistical and Stata."
The Statalist homepage may be accessed here. Visitors are encouraged to register, but may browse threads without registering. Users interested in contributing to the forum should visit the Statalist FAQ page.
Statalist also links to a comprehensive archive containing over twelve (12) years of forum activity, from June 2002 to April 2014.
