```Regarding the -dstdize- command I'm having trouble standardising large
datasets. I've used dstdize to standardize 450 seperate areas. This works
well but I'm finding the output very difficult to then analyse as Stata
produces a summary table for each population for 450 areas.

I would ideally like to be able to have standardized values for each local
area PLUS 95% confidence intervals in the data browser, so that i can
analyse results further. Using svmat I can take r(adj) and create a
variable for the standardized rate but can't get the confidence intervals.
Is there anyway of doing this?

Presumably you have looked at -dstdize- etc.
