## FREQ Statement

**FREQ** * variable ***;**

If one variable in your data set represents the frequency of
occurrence for the other values in the observation, specify
the variable's name in a FREQ statement. PROC CALIS then
treats the data set as if each observation appears *n*_{i} times,
where *n*_{i} is the value of the FREQ variable for
observation *i*. Only the integer portion of the value is used.
If the value of the FREQ variable is less than 1 or is missing,
that observation is not included in the analysis. The total number
of observations is considered to be the sum of the FREQ values
when the procedure computes significance probabilities. You can
use only one FREQ statement with each PROC CALIS statement.
