efficient sum for many columns

I'd like to calculate 55 separate column totals for agerisk1-agerisk55. There must be efficient way doing it right? My Sql shown below is tedious. Any suggestions?

 

data temp;
input tot_pop agerisk;
datalines;
15286	0.055
57522	0.217
28017	0.066
21669	0.064
17853	0.071
;

proc sql;
select sum(agerisk1) as sum_agerisk1, ....sum(agerisk55) as sum_agerisk55
from test;
quit;
