I am not aware of an .ado to calculate relative standard error. Perhaps people on this list are more used to looking at t or z statistics, which carry the same information. I doubt that there could be a single .ado to do what you want, but the general recipe is surely to get hold of the ingredients and do the work after estimation. For example, after a -regress- you can do this: mata : sqrt(diagonal(st_matrix("e(V)")))' :/ st_matrix("e(b)") For many people, perhaps you, that too counts as "by hand". Perhaps that is what you are doing already. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Dayna N KIRK 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? * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
