Fluorite | Level 6

Dear All,


in SAS by default there is the Mann-Whitney test which has disadvantages that can be solved with the Brunner-Munzel test which unfortunately is not implemented in SAS.
Could any of the developers generate an ad-hoc program?
There is the basic version and the version with permutations.
In R there are different versions therefore it would be important to have these two versions also in SAS to enhance the routines of this program and also innovate the tests compared to the now old ones.
I enclose some articles and two of them contain the program developed in R.


Thank you

Thanks a lot for the answer.


An ad-hoc program directly generated with SAS language is more useful than running an R routine.
R programs often contain errors and the results suffer.
Having a SAS program that generates the two versions (classic and with permutations) would be very important for SAS users and above all it strengthens the software itself for the future.




Do you have access to PROC IML (SAS/IML software)?

I have the latest version of SAS and so i think i can use the PROC IML.
I've never loaded R procedures into SAS.
In R, you often have to create the data vector, then create the vector, and then load it; while with SAS you just load the data with a libname and everything becomes easier.
So with a program (or macro) in SAS language, in my opinion it is more useful than running a program in R which I repeat often contain errors.

Thank you

I've verified that I can't change my SAS version options as I'm not the administrator and have a campus license.
I will give up having an ad-hoc program that reproduces the Brunner-Munzel test in the basic version and by permutations.


Thank you
