Did the METAREAD variable disappear from the database?

It seems that the METAREAD (detailed metropolitan area) identifier is no longer available as a variable, even though it is still mentioned in the METAREA variable. Has it been removed from the database? If not, how do I obtain it?

The detailed version of METAREA (e.g. METAREAD) is automatically included in any data extract that includes the METAREA variable. There is no separate way to add METAREAD. If you click "show" on the variables line of the "Extract Request" page, you should see both METAREA (general) and METAREAD (detailed) listed as variables in your extract. If this is for some reason not the case, let us know.
