I am currently trying to standardize IRR by age and sex. However my current version, SAS 9.2 does not have the Proc STDRATE statement. I am unsure of how I can generate standardized IRR without this procedure.
If you have a macro or know how to standardize ratios, please advise.

It's a fairly simple data step calculation if you have the data. But what version of SAS/STAT are you on?
I like this paper because it has worked examples so its easy to see the logic of how to standardize your rates.

Thank you Reeza! I am currently using SAS version 9.2.
Do you have any resources for coding the standardization of incidence rate ratios? I think I understand the basic logic of standardizing by age, however, I am at loss at finding a SAS code.

If you're looking for a macro then I don't have one, but I'm sure they're out there.
Realistically, I'd just write my code, because its so straight forward. You'd have to test and decode the macro.
Here's a few options:
