calculating averages of a variable depending on another variable and grouping them

Hi,

suppose I have the following table:

stockdatecategorysize
A31/12/2010130
A31/12/2010020
A31/12/2010140
A27/11/201104
A27/11/201116
A27/11/201118

for each stock-date combination, I would like to get the total average size and the average size of category 1:

stockdatetotal average sizecat1 average size
A31/12/20103035
A27/11/201167

Thank you!

Re: calculating averages of a variable depending on another variable and grouping them

Not quite the same format but try a proc means looking at WAYS and TYPE statement.

You could do a single proc sql as well.

Re: calculating averages of a variable depending on another variable and grouping them

Code:-

proc sql;

     create table sample1 as

     select stock,date,  avg(size) as total_average_size

          from stock

     group by date;

quit;

proc sql;

    

create table sample2 as     

     select stock,date, category,avg(size) as cat1_avg_size  

          from stock

     where category=1

     group by date, category;

quit;

proc sql;

     create table final as

          select a.*, b.cat1_avg_size

          from sample1 a, sample2 b

          where a.stock=b.stock;

quit;
