PROC REPORT: Next Steps
Unique to PROC REPORT are DATA step-like features that allow you to create a copy of a variable, called an alias, and temporary variables. Discover why you might need to use an alias when calculating multiple statistics for one analysis variable, or in using a variable for multiple purposes. We will also explain temporary variables and use examples to demonstrate how they are useful when calculating percentages within groups or performing conditional logic.
In this session, learn to:
- Use aliases effectively.
- Use temporary variables to change values on summary rows.
- Use temporary variables to control the value of the denominator used when calculating percentages.
- Apply different formats at a row level.
