I'm using pattern assignments in gchart for observations in 6 categories - I have patterns 1-6. I'm also creating multiple charts at once using the "by" statement (one chart for each group). If a group does not have an observation in a category, then SAS reassigns what category a pattern refers to, and thus changes the color dynamic for the whole graph. So, I'm making 50 graphs (one for each state), and I'm getting ~50 different color schemes for categories. Is there a way to assign the colors to the categories, non-dynamically?
It's a bit awkward/kludgy, but you're probably going to have to add some 'missing' values to your data ... each of the 50 states will have to have each of the 6 subtypes (with a sas 'missing' value for the pcr_count). -- There might be another way, but this is the technique I usually use.
This should work ok, since you're doing a type=sum bar chart (whereas if you were doing a frequency count bar chart, you might have to be a little trickier).
