Hello! I am using STATA 9.2 for Windows
 
Data supression guidelines for statistical reliability vary, however Healthy People 2010 and many U.S. health departments use a relative standard error (RSE) > 30% as a central criteria for data supression, primarily for BRFSS and YRBS.  While I can easily get STATA to present the standard error for point estimates in -svyset-, I have to calculate the RSE by hand (RSE = 100 x (SE(r)/r)).  This is time consuming given multiple counties, regions, race/ethnicities, etc. I have searched the archives, read the manual three times and asked some experts to no avail. Is there a simple command like -se-, -ci-, etc. for relative standard error?
 
Has anyone tried to create an ado file to address this simple, yet daily need?
 
Thanks for you help!
