There does not seem to be an option for obtaining the standard deviation in SUDAAN. The descript procedure provides only the standard error of the mean. I can obtain the standard deviation with SAS but I need to account for the design effects using Balanced Repeated Replication with SUDAAN. Does anyone know how to obtain the standard deviation? Or if it isn't available in SUDAAN should calculating it from the standard error of the mean provide an accurate estimate?
