How do I correct the following program;

**proc** **means** nway data= para noprint; class Variable; var estimate; output out=two (drop=_type_) mean(estimate)=col1

(**1**/**19**)*mean(StdErr)=col2 std(estimate)=col3;

**run**;

Hi.

I think you need to use an additional data step to create the 1/19 of the mean.

**proc** **means** nway data= para noprint; class Variable; var estimate; output out=two (drop=_type_) mean(estimate)=col1

(**1**/**19**)*mean(StdErr)=col2 std(estimate)=col3;

**run**;

data want;

set two;

new_mean = (col1/19)* col2;

run;

This is assuming that you want to calculate 1/19 of the mean times the std Err;

Am I getting this right?

Anca.
