# scatter plots with p.value and pearson coefficient

How can I make a scatter plot of 2 variables in sas and add an inset to it with the pearson coefficient and p.value.

## Re: scatter plots with p.value and pearson coefficient

If you know the coefficient and p-value, you can do this:

```proc sgplot data=sashelp.class;
scatter x=weight y=height;
inset ("Pearson" = "<value>" "P-value" = "<value>");
run;
```

Hope this helps!

Thank you Dan. But in this way I have to first run the statistics and then key in the values.

Is there a way in which sas would do both (statistics + plot with inset) for me in one go?

What statistics procedure are you using for the calculations?

I am new to sas, but my guess is I would use proc corr.

```

PROC CORR will do this, using ODS Graphics

Can you give more details about how to write the code? I am very new to sas.

I think the example that covers this specific issue is
