How do I generate a stem leaf plot?

Below is my code -

DATA blood_glucose_monitoring;

  INPUT Glucose;

  datalines;

  141

  158

  112

  153

  134

  95

  96

  78

  148

  172

  200

  271

  103

  172

  359

  145

  147;

run;

PROC PRINT DATA=blood_glucose_monitoring;

run;

PROC UNIVARIATE DATA=blood_glucose_monitoring PLOT;

  VAR Glucose;

run;

I have a horizontal bar graph, box plot, but don't know how to generate a stem leaf plot.

Thank you!

Re: How do I generate a stem leaf plot?

The first plot in the output is either a stem-and-leaf plot (Tukey; 1977) or a horizontal bar chart. If any single interval contains more than 49 observations, the horizontal bar chart appears. Otherwise, the stem-and-leaf plot appears. The stem-and-leaf plot is like a horizontal bar chart in that both plots provide a method to visualize the overall distribution of the data. The stem-and-leaf plot provides more detail because each point in the plot represents an individual data value.
