Could you please direct me to a paper or material that explains clearly about the combinations of class variables that I can use for an analysis using types() statement in proc means.
I don't have a clear understanding of this. If anyone have any thoughts please share.
thanks in advance.

This is one good paper that I found useful and explains quite well the use of TYPES and WAYS statements

Suppose you have a number of classification variables, for example age, gender, country
And then you want means (and other statistics optionally) classified by specific age/gender/country combinations
you could use TYPES AGE GENDER*COUNTRY COUNTRY;
so that you get the means by AGE, means by GENDER and COUNTRY combination, and means by COUNTRY.

Thank you Paigemiller for the explanation. I know that much, but how to determine which one needs to go in for the analysis, that was my question.
thanks skyvalley81 for the article.
