## OUTPARM= Data Set

An output data set containing information regarding the
association between model effects and design matrix columns
is created whenever you specify the OUTPARM= option in the
PROC GLMMOD statement. The OUTPARM= data set contains an
observation for each column of the design matrix with the
following variables:
- a numeric variable, _COLNUM_, identifying the number
of the column of the design matrix corresponding to this
observation
- a character variable, EFFNAME, containing the name of the
effect that generates the column of the design matrix
corresponding to this observation
- the CLASS variables, with the values they have for the
column corresponding to this observation, or blanks if
they are not involved with the effect associated with
this column

If there are BY-group variables or if the pattern of missing
values for the dependent variables requires it,
the single data set defines several design matrices. In this
case, for each of these design matrices, the OUTPARM= data set
also contains the following:

- the current values of the BY variables, if you specify a BY statement
- a numeric variable, _YPASS_, containing the current pass
of the data, if the pattern of missing values for the
dependent variables requires multiple passes
