Histograms - add axis label and specify endpoints

[ Edited ]

Hi I'm trying to produce a histogram within SAS for education.

I tried using proc sgplot but was unable to make the intervals at the edges not the centre.

 

So I tried using proc univariate but was unable to label my axis.

 

Is it possible to do both?

 

proc univariate data=SASUSER.DATA1;
histogram sales2015 / endpoints=(0 to 16000 by 2000);
run;

 

proc sgplot data=SASUSER.DATA1;

histogram sales2015 / nbins=7 binstart=1000 binwidth=2000 SHOWBINS ;
xaxis label="Sales in 2015";

yaxis grid;
run;

Your xaxis? Apply a label to the variable and it will pass through to the PROC.

 

label sales2015 = 'My axis title';

Thanks, this is perfect. Is it also possible to change my chart title?

Sure. In the HISTOGRAM statement you can add the ODSTITLE.

 

histogram .... / endpoints=(....) odstitle = 'MY GRAPH TITLE';

thank you so much,

 

sorry final question, is it possible to just display the histogram and not all the additional data?

Note: I've moved your post to the Graphs forum as it relates more to graphing than SAS Studio and I have changed your subject line to be more descriptive. You can undo any of these changes if you feel they are not appropriate.

Re: Histograms - add axis label and specify endpoints

Yes. You can control the location of the ticks and whether the labels occur at the end of the bins or in the middle of a bin. Follow the instructions and examples at "Choosing bins for histograms in SAS."

 

The same examp[le shows how to display titles In PROC UNIVARIATE by using the ODSTITLE= and ODSTITLE2= options. 

You can refer to the contents of the TITLE and TITLE2 global statements, our you can specify a string:

histogram X / odstitle="Main title" odstitle2="minor title";
