This page provides prices for updating existing single-user and multi-user licenses for RATS for UNIX/Linux to Version 10.0. If you would like to make a platform switch among UNIX/Linux, Windows or Mac, please contact us for pricing—in general, the "standard" executable-only levels of those are treated as being equivalent when you do a major update.

Note: Users who have been running UNIX RATS on Macintosh OS X systems will probably prefer to upgrade to the OS X-native version of MacRATS, since that can be run from the shell as well as interactively.

An alternative to one-off updates for UNIX/Linux software are update subscriptions. Both "annual" and "version" update subscriptions are available for all of our UNIX and Linux RATS products. You can contact either us (sales@estima.com) or your local reseller for more information.

Standard and Professional Level

We offer both "Standard" and "Professional" levels of UNIX RATS. Currently, the "Professional" level includes four features not available in the "Standard":

  • An additional instruction (called X11) implementing the Census Bureau's X11/X12-ARIMA seasonal adjustment routines.
  • Support for reading and writing FAME data files (requires FAME software)
  • Support for reading CRSP data files
  • Direct access to the FRED database via an internet connection.

The prices for updating one single-user UNIX or Linux license to Version 9.0 are shown in the table below. These are the same whether you currently have Standard or Pro levels of the software. The prices for upgrades in the level are also included—these can be summarized by $150 for the basic update, $150 extra to go from "Standard" to "Pro" and $100 extra to move from an executable-only license to a source code license.
