[SDS] Updated version of estmi.ado available for SIPP Synthetic Beta users

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A new version of the estmi.ado program is available on the SDS. This program is customized for the SIPP Synthetic Beta (SSB) or sipp Gold Standard File, and needs only to be available at the Census Bureau and on the SDS.

From the help file (stata -> help estmi):

estmi combines saved estimates across the four completed implicates of the SIPP Gold Standard File (GSF) or the sixteen synthetic implicates of the SIPP Synthetic Beta (SSB).
The estimates from each implicate must have been saved using estimates save with a common filename prefix followed by m, m=1,4 for completed GSF or SSB and by r, r=1,4 for SSB (eg. prefix1 for GSF and prefix11 for SSB).

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the implementation of 'estmi.ado', please contact Graton Gathright at
