I am trying to use PROC boxplot with BLOCK statments,
it works fine while using raw data.
But it seems dosen't work while using the BOX data.
/*Using the raw data, outputs - box_raw*/
proc boxplot data=eg_out1;
plot EGRN*n(abbr VISID)/outbox=out1;
/*Using the BOX data, outputs - box_box*/
proc boxplot box=out1;
plot EGRN*n(abbr VISID);
The boxplots parts in both outputs are the same, but the BLOCK parts is incorrect while using the BOX data inputs.
Is there any way to solve this ?
It's difficult for me to determine what's going on without seeing the data. Note that block variables are intended to identify blocks of box-and-whisker charts. The values of the block variables (abbr and VISIS) should be the same for all observations contributing to one box, i.e. those with the same value of the group variable, n. Does your data fit that description?
The raw data is like this:
EGRN. abbr. visid. n
10. PBO. 20. 1
25 PBO. 20. 1
16 PBO. 20. 1
18. TRT1. 20. 2
14. TRT1. 20. 2
23 TRT1. 20. 2
16 TRT2. 20. 3
29 PBO . 30. 4
17 TRT1 . 30. 5
And the dataset out1 is something like this:
n _type_ _var_ _value_ abbr. visid
1 N EGRN 201 PBO 20
1 MEAN EGRN 21.2 PBO 20
1 MAX EGRN 24 PBO 20
2 N EGRN 211 TRT1 20
2 MEAN EGRN 23.2 TRT1 20
2 MAX EGRN 25 TRT1 20
3 N EGRN 281 TRT2 20
3 MEAN EGRN 21.2 TRT2 20
3 MAX EGRN 29 TRT2 20
4 N EGRN 219 PBO 30
4 MEAN EGRN 22.2 PBO 30
4 MAX EGRN 27 PBO 30
n is simply a dummy variable, and dataset out1 is the
summary datasets of the raw data using PROC BOXPLOT, and I think
the data fit the description.
To data _null_ :
I'll try to sort the BLOCK variable tomorrow, and let you know if it works or not.
