User Alert:

March 14, 2019: EVALIDator users:
If you are running a ratio report where the numerator or denominator is a change estimate (growth, removals, or mortality), do not pick the option to report “Output estimates (runs 7 to 8 times faster than with sampling errors)”. Instead stick with the default “Output estimates and sampling errors”. This bug has been fixed in the next release of the EVALIDator, which will be deployed in May of 2019.

For EVALIDator and DataMart users wishing to know what has recently become available see this page:

May 29, 2018: The online tool, FIDO, is no longer being supported. We encourage people to use either DATIM or EVALIDator for their data needs. Thank you.

September 22, 2015: The EVALIDator is unable to produce estimates of growth, removals and mortality for multiple inventories when "Trend analysis" is chosen as the row classification variable and the inventories chosen have different sampling designs (i.e., a mix of periodic and annual inventories). In the event that a user inadvertently runs such a retrieval the EVALIDator will return zeroes for the periodic inventories and the correct numbers for the annual inventories. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
