Hi,

 

I was reading a paper on cancer on JAMA and the data was analyzed using SAS. The graphics were qualitatively high and I would like to learn a couple of things.

For example in this kaplan-meier curve, a box is added around the first letter of the title. I suppose this graph was constructed as a lattice in SGPlot or maybe Proc LifeTest. How is it possible to add this box? I usually use the newsurv macro for kaplan-meier curves. Is it possible to do it there too?

 

The graph (click here).

 

The paper (click here).

 

Thanks

Ubai

I think you'll need to use an annotation data set to put a box around just a part of a title.

 

ods graphics / noborder;

proc sgplot data=sashelp.class;
  scatter y=weight x=height / group=sex;
  title j=l box=1 "A  Height and Weight for SASHELP.CLASS";
  footnote j=l 'This version uses TITLE statement with BOX option';
run;

title;

%sganno;

data anno;
  %sgtext(label=" A", 
          border="true",
          drawspace="layoutpercent",
          xc1="2",
          yc1="105",
          anchor="center",
          justify="center");
  %sgtext(label="  Height and weight for SASHELP.CLASS", 
          border="false",
          xc1="24",
          yc1="105",
          widthunit="percent",
          width=50,
          justify="left");
run;

* pad= option is adding space at the top of the graphic for 
* the title from the annotation data set ;

proc sgplot data=sashelp.class sganno=anno pad=(top=10pct);
  scatter y=weight x=height / group=sex;
  footnote j=l 'This version uses annotation data set for the title.';
run;  

ods graphics / reset=all;

The screen shot below shows the graphic when using an annotation data set for the title.
