Hello I need to make a vertical box plot to summarize outcome by gender AND disease.
I know how to make a vertical box plot with one of the two variables on the x axis but how would i incorporate the other one?
Here is my code for just one variable. Thanks for any help!
proc sgplot data=combined;
vbox Mean_T_S_Ratio /category=gender boxwidth=0.5; xaxis label="gender"; run;

A box plot, by definition, uses only one variable on the vertical axis. The CATEGORY= option allows only one variable.
So to directly answer your question: you cannot make a boxplot with two variables on the vertical axis.
Some other type of graph might be appropriate, such as HEATMAP, or just a plain old scatterplot.
