## FREQ Statement

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

If a variable in the data set represents the frequency
of occurrence for the other values in the observation,
include the name of the variable in a FREQ statement.
The procedure then treats the data set as if each
observation appears *n* times, where *n* is the
value of the FREQ variable for the observation.
The total number of observations is considered to be equal
to the sum of the FREQ variable when the procedure determines
degrees of freedom for significance probabilities.
If the value of the FREQ variable is missing or is less
than one, the observation is not used in the analysis.
If the value is not an integer,
the value is truncated to an integer.
