Beginner Question: Creating Segment / Variable

Hi everyone,

I have just used SAS EM 14.2 to segments a variable into 4 equal segments (quartiles) by doing the following:

 

- Using a Transform variables node >>>variables property >>> Changing METHOD to Quantile

 

This should produce four equal segments for the variable but it produces the unequal segments shown on the image below.

 

What can I do to make it produce four equal segments. (no other property adjustments have been made apart from the step outlined above)

Thanks

Re: Beginner Question: Creating Segment / Variable

Do you have missing values or values that are clustered together so that they could not be split easily (ie lots of rows with the same value)?
