SAS Procedures Guide |
To produce ... | Use this procedure ... | Which ... | |
---|---|---|---|
Descriptive statistics | CORR | computes simple descriptive statistics. | |
MEANS or SUMMARY | computes descriptive statistics; can produce printed output and output data sets. By default, PROC MEANS produces printed output and PROC SUMMARY creates an output data set. | ||
REPORT | computes most of the same statistics as PROC TABULATE; allows customization of format. | ||
SQL | computes descriptive statistics for data in one or more DBMS tables; can produce a printed report or create a SAS data set. | ||
TABULATE | produces tabular reports for descriptive statistics; can create an output data set. | ||
UNIVARIATE | computes the broadest set of descriptive statistics; can create an output data set. | ||
Frequency and cross-tabulation tables | FREQ | produces one-way to n-way tables; reports frequency counts; computes chi-square tests; computes tests and measures of association and agreement for two-way to n-way cross-tabulation tables; can compute exact tests and asymptotic tests; can create output data sets. | |
TABULATE | produces one-way and two-way cross-tabulation tables; can create an output data set. | ||
UNIVARIATE | produces one-way frequency tables. | ||
Correlation analysis | CORR | computes Pearson's, Spearman's, and Kendall's correlations and partial correlations; also computes Hoeffding's D and Cronbach's coefficient alpha. | |
Distribution analysis | UNIVARIATE | computes tests for location and tests for normality. | |
FREQ | computes a test for the binomial proportion for one-way tables; computes a goodness-of-fit test for one-way tables; computes a chi-square test of equal distribution for two-way tables. | ||
Robust estimation | UNIVARIATE | computes robust estimates of scale, trimmed means, and Winsorized means. | |
Data transformation | |||
Computing ranks | RANK | computes ranks for one or more numeric variables across the observations of a SAS data set and creates an output data set; can produce normal scores or other rank scores. | |
Standardizing data | STANDARD | creates an output data set that contains variables that are standardized to a given mean and standard deviation. | |
Low-resolution graphics^{*} | |||
CHART | produces a graphical report that can show one of the following statistics for the chart variable: frequency counts, percentages, cumulative frequencies, cumulative percentages, totals, or averages. | ||
UNIVARIATE | produces descriptive plots such as stem and leaf, box plot, and normal probability plot. | ||
* To produce high-resolution graphical reports, use SAS/GRAPH Software. |
