size of slices in a Pie chart

Hello all:

  I am wondering if you can ask SAS to size the slices in a pie chart according to the percentage but also display the mean sumvar statistics. For example, I can do

proc gchart data=survey;

   pie role / sumvar=score

   percent=inside

   value=arrow

   descending

   slice=arrow   

   coutline=black

   noheading;

run;

quit;

In this case, the slices are proportional to the % of role and sum of scores are displayed. What I really want is to display is the mean of scores. However when I add

type=mean

The size of slices become proportional to mean(score) instead of percentage now. How can I fix this?

Thanks,

Peter

Re: size of slices in a Pie chart

If you specify TYPE=MEAN and use the SUBGROUP= option, the height of the block represents the mean for the entire midpoint. The subgroup segments are proportional to the subgroup's contribution to the sum for the block.

Do you have any example data you can post up?
