MET2013ERR
Coverage error in MET2013 variable

Description

MET2013ERR identifies the level of mismatch error between each MET2013 code and the corresponding 2013 metropolitan statistical area (MSA).

MET2013's code assignment protocol yields errors of omission (residents of a MSA who are not identified as residents) and errors of commission (non-residents who are identified as residents). As an index of mismatch, IPUMS uses the sum of percent omission error (the portion of an MSA's population residing in excluded PUMAs) and percent commission error (the portion of the population in associated PUMAs that did not reside in the MSA).

For each reported MET2013 code, MET2013ERR identifies the level of the sum of errors.

MET2013 reports no code for MSAs where the sum of match errors is 15% or more. Researchers may use MET2013ERR to impose a more restrictive error limit if desired.

To compute match errors, IPUMS uses 2010 populations for ACS and PRCS samples and 2000 populations for 2000 samples. For samples that use 2000 PUMA definitions (which includes the 2000 samples and ACS and PRCS samples through 2011), IPUMS estimates the populations of the areas of intersection between 2000 PUMAs and 2013 MSAs by summing the populations of census blocks that had their geographic center in each area.

For more detailed information about PUMA-MSA relationships and MET2013 match errors, IPUMS provides these tables (in Excel spreadsheets):
