Hi all,

I two numeric-Continuous variables. I'd like to draw a distribution where one continues variable x-axis and the other one is y-axis. I draw scatter plots with the curve but I don't want dots in the graph. It should be more like Kernel or Normal distribution. However, as I know I can draw Kernel or Normal distribution with only one variable using density. I want a distribution as seen below.

Could you help me to draw it?

Thanks.

Using @PeterClemmensen's data set.

Maybe:

proc sgplot data=have; pbspline x=scores y=ss; run;

or

proc sgplot data=have; reg x=scores y=ss / degree=3 nomarkers; run;

We kind of need a bit more description of your expectations than "no dots".

the scores will be x-axis and ss will be y-axis.

I'm not really sure how you expect this data to yield a plot like you posted. However, to get things started, you can fit a normal density plot like this

```
data have;
input scores ss;
datalines;
920 5.5
941 6.3
935 8.2
910 9.5
972 10.5
954 .
925 9.2
900 8.7
;
proc sgplot data=have;
density ss;
run;
```
