Hi I currently have a data set where I am trying to get the proc means for all numeric variables - n, mean, median, std, min, max, and confidence intervals

 

Here is the code I wrote:

 

proc means data=test n mean lclm uclm alpha=0.05 median min max missing ;
output out=test_stat; 
by group;
var
time1 time2 time3 time4;
run;

 

The code works in the result viewer but when i look at test_stat (it has not included upper and lower confidence intervals)

 

Any help would be great!

 

Thanks

Hi @radhikaa4 

 

In the OUTPUT statement, you need to specify the column name to retrieve each statistic :

output out=test_stat n= mean= median= std= min= max= lclm= uclm= / autoname; 

You can also personalize the names of the new columns, e.g.:

 

output out=test_stat n=(n_time1 n_time2 n_time3 n_time4) ...; 

 

NB: in the VAR Statement, you can put _NUMERIC_ to mention all numeric variables instead of time1 time2 time3 time4, assuming there is no other numeric variable in your input dataset.
