"Visualising" data

Hi all

I wonder if anyone has any suggestion / Macro / idea about how to visualize the frequencies of the different variables in a dataset?

To explain a bit more, how to display a graphic presentation of the data, let us say, by showing a histogram showing the frequencies of male and females in the gender variable (categorical variable) of the dataset, and a histogram for the frequencies of people in age (continuous variable, same as the histogram in the proc univariate) ? Or if you have a better suggession that only histograms to "see" the data?

Kind regards

Re: "Visualising" data

proc freq data=have;

tables _all_ /plots=freqplot;

run;

If you have continuous variable such as age want specific groups then a custom format:

proc format;

value agegrp

0 - 12 = 'Preteen'

13-19 = 'Teen'

20-high='Adult';

run;

and associate that format with the variable in the proc code by adding:

format age agegrp. ;
