Merging a Repeated Measures data set with a non repeated measures data set
I have 2 data sets
example.new, the repeated measures data set
example.old, the non repeated measures data set
I am trying to create a data set that included arm and has the same observations as the non repeated data set.
/*new data set with new variable -arm*/
keep id arm;
proc sort data=work.arm;
proc sort data=example.old;
if A=1 ;
The problem is that this code does not work. The following is from the log.
NOTE: There were 3487 observations read from the data set WORK.ARM.
NOTE: There were 706 observations read from the data set example.old
NOTE: The data set example.arm has 2120 observations and 29 variables.
NOTE: DATA statement used (Total process time):
real time 4.25 seconds
cpu time 0.04 seconds
I want example.arm to have the same 706 observations as example.old but it keeps giving me 2120 observations.
