How Can I Insert Custom Quantile Line in SGPLOT Graph?

Hi, All:

 

 

I want to know How to Insert Custom Quantile Line to SGPLOT Graph.

Example code is following.

data test;
    input x y @@;
    datalines;
    10 10 4 5 2 5 2 4 8 4 9 6 7 6 5 2
    1 1 3 2 4 7 6 7 8 9 11 8 6 4
    ;
run;
proc univariate data=test noprint;
    var x;
    output out=pctl pctlpts=25 50 75 100 pctlpre=pctl;
run;
data test_1;
    set test;
    if _n_ eq 1 then set pctl;
    if x le pctl25 then pctlgrp=1;
    else if x le pctl50 then pctlgrp=2;
    else if x le pctl75 then pctlgrp=3;
    else if x le pctl100 then pctlgrp=4;
run;
proc sort data=test_1 out=test_2;
    by pctlgrp;
run;
ods output basicintervals=mci(where=(parameter eq "Mean"));
proc univariate data=test_2 cibasic;
    var y;
    by pctlgrp;
run;
proc univariate data=test_2 noprint;
    var x;
    by pctlgrp;
    output out=med median=med;
run;
data mci_1;
    set mci(drop=varname parameter);
run;
data test_3;
    merge test_2(in=a) med(in=b) mci_1(in=c);
    by pctlgrp;
    if a;
run;
proc sgplot data=test_3;
    reg x=x y=y / clm nomarkers;
    scatter x=med y=estimate / yerrorlower=lowercl yerrorupper=uppercl;
run;

On this graph, I want horizontal line (0th (x=1), 25th (x=3), 50th (x=6), 75th (x=8), 100th (x=11) percentile with marker line) on axis Y's "0.0", like following picture's black line.

I tried to insert this line by making graph from specific data, but markers "PLUS" were out of this line's end.

Thank you for your kind cooperation.

Hi @KentaMURANAKA,

 

Have you tried the SG annotation feature?

 

First, you could include the 0th percentile in your PCTL dataset (see your first PROC UNIVARIATE step):

output out=pctl pctlpts=0 25 50 75 100 pctlpre=pctl;

 

Then use this dataset to supply coordinates to an SG annotation dataset:

%sganno; /* compile SG annotation macros */

data pctlline;
set pctl;
h=0.2; /* half the length of the vertical lines */
%sgline(x1=pctl0, y1=0, x2=pctl100, y2=0, drawspace="datavalue"); /* horizontal line */
%sgline(x1=pctl0, y1=-h, x2=pctl0, y2=h); /* first vertical line */
%sgline(x1=pctl25, x2=pctl25); /* subsequent vertical lines retain the same y-coordinates */
%sgline(x1=pctl50, x2=pctl50);
%sgline(x1=pctl75, x2=pctl75);
%sgline(x1=pctl100, x2=pctl100);
run;

(The SG annotation macros are available starting with the first maintenance release of SAS 9.4.)

 

Finally, add the SGANNO= option to your PROC SGPLOT step:

proc sgplot data=test_3 sganno=pctlline;

 

I don't know why the vertical lines seem to be shifted a little bit to the right. If this is an issue, you may want to tweak their x-coordinates, e.g.:

data pctlline;
set pctlline;
x1=x1-0.02;
x2=x2-0.02;
run;
