Hello User Group,
I like the ease of using MDAT to access PUMS data. It's a good interface with a lot of user-friendly ways to customize and aggregate microdata. What it does not currently do calculate the RSE of the estimates. I have to rely on R or IPUMS to calculate RSE when developing customized estimates.
I can understand why the process to calculate RSE may add to use of resources on the backend, slowing the responsiveness of the tool. Would it be possible instead to add PWGTP1 through PWGTP80 as additional columns in the export section? That would allow users to finish the rest of those calculations on our end.
Please reach out to the CEDSCI Communication Team at firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestion.
Thanks for the email contact. I'll put the request in later today.
