Re: data distribution

proc gplot ; will give you some basic face of data.
If you know data distribution like some distribution ( Normal t-distribution Beta F-distribution) then proc univariate will help you a little.

In particular look at the Q_Q Plot option in UNIVARIATE, as it allows you to examine the actual distribution against a lot of different theoretical distributions.
