# Transpose data

Good afternoon all! Here is the sample dataset (real data has 9 variable conditions)

data have;

input Neuroses \$ Psychoses \$ SignsSimpt \$ Antisocial \$ Depression \$ Anomalies_Neurological \$ ;

datalines;

40891863A 51330023A 84501233A 77699061A 32596703A 21189153A
77425921A 80328413A 61073933A 81441794A 10418753A 14050203A
13885263A 57306061A 08707021A 58633031A 44606543A 22757783A
01247023A 42638553A 32907423A 47662551A 52508373A 30956893A
44606543A 58393081A 64904003A 28133791A 20982933A 75235783A

;

run;

So basically under each diagnosis condition, there are patient id's. A patient could have more than one condition. What i want is an output which tells that how many patients have 9 conditions at once, 8 conditions at once, 7 conditions at once and so on. So, essentially something like this

No of conditions  1        2          3      4   5     6   7     8   9

No of members  450    378    245  200 145 100 56  34 12

I tried playing around with simple proc transpose, but im not going anywhere. Thanks so much!

## Re: Transpose data

[ Edited ]

Let convert file HAVE to HELP with two variables: Diagnosys and Patient_ID,

thus can be done in a code like:

data HELP;

set HAVE;

Patient_ID = Neuroses;      Diagnosys = 'Neuroses';  output;

Patient_ID = Psychoses;    Diagnosys = 'Psychoses';  output;

... etc all 9 kinds of diagnosys ....

run;

Then use PROC FREQ with the OUT option twice to get your wanted output:

1st time TABLE Patient_ID  (assuming no patients with duplicates of same diagnosys)

2nd time TABLE  Count       (or _FREQ_ depends on SAS version)

## Re: Transpose data

Thanks Chriznz and Ksharp. Both the solutions worked, i understood Ksharp's better as im not aware of the function used by chrisnz. I will dig deeper into it to learn more.
