Categorical scatterplots similar to PRISM?

The title says it all, I'm trying to generate a scatterplot similar what PRISM can do. Has anyone tried to do something similar in SAS?

Trying a categorical x-axis only creates a column of dots with the corresponding values.

proc sgplot data=sashelp.class;

  scatter x=sex y = height

  /MARKERATTRS  =(symbol=circlefilled);

  run;

I appreciate your feedback.

You may have to explain what that graph represents and the pieces. No legend makes it very hard to guess. It looks like it might be a scatter plot overlayed on a box plot but the content isn't very obvious without much more information.

Include data used to make your example as we have no clue what your data structure would be and we can't even make a test data set to try to match your output.

JITTER is supported at SAS 9.4.  Jitter kicks in when the data is very dense.  But it may not kick in for sashelp.class.

proc sgplot data=sashelp.cars(where=(type ne 'Hybrid'));

  scatter x=type y=mpg_city / jitter

          MARKERATTRS=(symbol=circlefilled);

  run;

We are considering other types of jitter and options.  Please feel free to provide your suggestions.
