Coloured Scatter Diagram

Hi, I'd like to colour the plots on my scatter diagram in red. The code I am currently using is:

 

ods graphics / reset imagemap;
title "Data Set 1 - Sales in 2015";
proc sgplot data = work.data1a (where =(online = 2));
scatter x = tradingyears y = sales2015;
label sales2015 = 'Sales in 2015';
run;
ods graphics / reset;
title;

 

I simply want to add like color='red'; but not sure how? TIA

use the markerattrs option after a forward slash in your scatter statement like this

 

title 'Coloring the markers red in a scatterplot';
proc sgplot data = sashelp.class;
	scatter x=height y=weight / markerattrs=(color=red);
run;
title;

Here is the documentation for the scatter statement

and the documentation for Marker Attributes and Symbols, which are controlable with the markerattrs option

Re: Coloured Scatter Diagram

So in your case it will be

 

ods graphics / reset imagemap;
title "Data Set 1 - Sales in 2015";
proc sgplot data = work.data1a (where =(online = 2));
scatter x = tradingyears y = sales2015 / markerattrs=(color=red);
label sales2015 = 'Sales in 2015';
run;
ods graphics / reset;
title;
