proc ssm question


Please can someone explain what exactly is going on here. I have read the user guide, but i dont understand what is going on

I get the beta2 to beta 6, but i am not sure I understand what is lv1- lv8 and avar, wnv1 etc and tvar

Any help is greatly appreciated


Thanks so much!
