We don't yet have SAS/GRAPH and are considering purchasing.  Can you describe the process (short version) to add vertical error bars around a series of points?  These will be confidence intervals around the mean.  Would this be GPLOT or GCHART or other?  Anything else we should know? Thanks

Hi.

Both will do it for you.

proc gchart data = sashelp.class;

     vbar sex/ type=MEAN errorbar=BOTH clm=95 sumvar=age;

run; quit;

And here is more info:

For proc gplot you will have to calculate yourself the mean +/- s.e. to get the upper/lower Confidence Limits.Then use an overlay to plot.

Here is more information:

You can also use PROC SGPLOT. For bar charts, line charts, and dot plots, you can have the procedure compute three types of limits: clm, stderr, and stddev. YOu can also specify a multiplier for stderr and stddev.

proc sgplot data=sashelp.class;

vbar age / response=weight stat=mean limitstat=clm;

run;

For plots, you can use overlays to plot the limit bars:

proc sgplot data=somedata;

series x=xvar y=yvar;

scatter x=xvar y=yvar / yerrorupper=ulimitvar yerrorlower=llimitvar;

run;

The SG procedure were introduced in SAS 9.2 as part of SAS/GRAPH; however, as of SAS 9.3, they are part of BASE SAS.

Hope this helps!
