Re: SUM [how to improve your question]

Hello @Hope18,


Your question requires more details before experts can help. Can you revise your question to include more information? 

 

Review this checklist:

  • Specify a meaningful subject line for your topic.  Avoid generic subjects like "need help," "SAS query," or "urgent."
  • When appropriate, provide sample data in text or DATA step format.  See this article for one method you can use.
  • If you're encountering an error in SAS, include the SAS log or a screenshot of the error condition. Use the Photos button to include the image in your message.

  • It also helps to include an example (table or picture) of the result that you're trying to achieve.

To edit your original message, select the "blue gear" icon at the top of the message and select Edit Message.  From there you can adjust the title and add more details to the body of the message.  Or, simply reply to this message with any additional information you can supply.

I am calculating the adult equivalency for each household and would like to find the total value for all the members of the household.

Use PROC MEANS. See the documentation for details. 

 

Vague questions get vague answers. If you want example code, you need to provide example data. 

 

Good Luck.
