Hi All,

Is it possible to re-create this chart in SAS. It was made in Excel. I need to incorporate drill down and some other things but can't do it in Excel. I have looked around in the docs, but did not see anything like this. Oh by the way need the spaces between groups. The groupa are from left to right: weeks, quarters, half years. I appreciate the help. I am running SAS 9.2 on windows.

Thanks.

Here is your graph using SAS 9.2 SGPLOT procedure.

StackedBarLine_SG.png

SAS 9.2 SGPLOT Code is straightforward:

ods html;

ods graphics / reset imagemap=on;

title 'Stacked Grouped BarLine Chart';

proc sgplot data=groupedData;

  format xaxis $xaxis. linevalue percent.;

  vbar xaxis / response=BarValue group=Group missing url=url;

  vline xaxis / response=LineValue group=Group missing y2axis break markers

        markerattrs=(symbol=circlefilled size=5) lineattrs=(pattern=solid);

  xaxis display=(noticks nolabel) discreteorder=data;

  yaxis offsetmin=0 values=(0 to 14000 by 2000) grid;

  y2axis offsetmin=0 values=(0 to 0.07 by 0.01);

run;

ods html close;

The key is how to create the blank spaces between the groups.  Using a missing value or blank works if you have only one.  With two, they get combined into one value on the x axis.  So, I replaced the two missing values in your spreadsheet with the strings "Miss1" and "Miss2".  You can use any distinct strings.

Then, I created a format and formatted each of these strings to a unique invisible string using the non-breaking space 'A0'x.  This space does not get stripped out, and so I made one with a nbsp on each side of a 10 character string, and another with a third nbsp in the middle.

I also changed your structure from a multi column to a grouped format mainly to get the stacked bar chart.  VLINE statement uses BREAK option to break each line at the missing value.  Add URL column to data set and set it on the url option.

I believe this could be made using 9.2 SG or GTL.  Can you attach your data?

Dear

I suppose with many customization you can use this sample provided by SAS :

http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/graphref/63022/HTML/default/viewer.htm#a003171144.htm

I depend also which SAS tool you use (EG,Add-ins, SAS Foundation, SAS graph, Web Report Studio ) ?

Hi lacrefa,

Thanks for the link. I am aware of the vast standard charting capabilities of SAS, and I do not know how to put spaces in the xaxis using gbarline, there is not option for grouping. I am not a new SAS programmer, but SG and GTL I am not familiar with it at all.

Thanks,

Hi Sanjay,

You need to use the "advanced editor" to attach file. Would you also please attach the sas dataset?

Thanks!

A couple of buttons labelled something like "Useful Reply" and Correct Answer" should appear at the bottom of each new post; all you should then need to do is click the relevant one - but having said that, I'm not seeing them here, and I don't know why not.  Can anybody help?

CPAZ;

It's a too busy graph and dual scale graphs are not good dataviz practice.  I recommend that you split it into two smaller graphs - one for count and another for percent.  Retain the same colours in both graphs for each group to reduce the amount of legend and use fewer tick marks on the axes to reduce the busyness.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately separating the graphs is not an option. This kind of graph is commonly used in my company, so the audience is well aware on how to read the graph. It gives them the most amount of information in a single graph.
