I have a categorical variable in my data. I am trying to draw a bar graph for this variable based on the percents. The below code is working but the sum of percentages is not 100%. I don't know how it is calculating this. Is there an easy way to draw a percentage-based bar graph?
proc sgplot data=alt_listening; title "Proficiency Level: List 1-2"; vbar listening_pl / stat=pct transparency=0.25 fillattrs=(color=black) ; yaxis label= 'Percent' ; xaxis label= 'Proficiency Level'; by cluster_listening; run;
For the record, the default percentage basis is the entire graph output, including all BY-groups. To change this basis, use the PCTLEVEL option like you did set the level you want to be the basis for 100%. In SGPLOT, there are three levels: Graph (the default), BY (for BY-groups), and Group (all groups within a category = 100%). For SGPANEL, there are four levels: Graph, BY, Cell (all bars in each cell = 100%), and Group.
