Re: Now to create scatter plot like this?

OK, one more try, following @Sanjay_SAS's suggestion (tested with 9.4) :

 

proc sql;
create table class as
select *, median(weight) as med
from sashelp.class
group by age;
quit;

proc sgplot data=class noautolegend;
highlow x=age high=med low=med / type=bar lineattrs=(thickness=2 color=red) barwidth=0.6;
scatter y=weight x=age / markerattrs=(symbol=circlefilled color=blue);
xaxis type=discrete;
run;

We could try the sgplot procedure as below,  I am assuming that the graph is overlapping of scatter plot on box plot with mean. If it is the case the below procedure should help.

 

proc sgplot data=have;

scatter x=feed_type y=weight /  markerattrs = (size = 2 symbol = circlefilled); /*this will be the scatter plot*/

vbox weight / category=feed_type; /*this will create the box plot with mean*/

quit;

run;

 

Thanks,

Hi Jagadishkatam,

 

It seems that the overlapping scatter plot and box plot is not worked.
Please see the SAS log below.
Thanks for your reply.

By the way, I'm using SAS 9.3.

I guess in 9.3 you could cheat this way:

 

proc sql;
create table class as
select *, median(weight) as med
from sashelp.class
group by age;
quit;

proc sgplot data=class noautolegend;
scatter x=age y=med / yerrorlower=med yerrorupper=med 
    markerattrs=(size=0) errorbarattrs=(thickness=2 color=red);
scatter y=weight x=age / markerattrs=(symbol=circlefilled color=blue);
run;

Hi PG Stats,

Thanks for your solution.
Another question, how to lengthen the length of 'mean'?

I don't know. Seems to be proportional to line thickness.

Okay. I will try.
According to your reply, SAS 9.3 cannot overlay vbox and scatter plot, right?

Re: Now to create scatter plot like this?

Here is an approaching example: 

 

proc sql;
create table class as
select *, median(weight) as med
from sashelp.class
group by age;
quit;

proc sgplot data=class noautolegend;
vbox med / category=age nomean nomedian nocaps
    lineattrs=(color=red thickness=2);
scatter y=weight x=age / markerattrs=(symbol=circlefilled);
xaxis type=discrete;
run;

If you know the value for drawing the mean or median (the red line), and are using SAS 9.3, I suggest overlaying a Scatter and a HighLow (Type=Bar).  Make the high and low the same value to get a single line.  You can set the BarWidth to control the width of the line.

Re: Now to create scatter plot like this?

I'm creating the figure by your suggestion. Great thanks for everyone's suggestion!
Besides, the function "median" seems not okay in SAS 9.3. There will be a warning message "The MEDIAN function has been called with only one argument.".
However, 'mean' function can be worked in proc sql statement and that what I need!

Thanks again!
