I've scanned the SAS/IML® 13.2 User’s Guide (UG) and didn't find a list of of functions that operate on the columns of an NxM array, returning a 1XM vector of results.

So I made this list: CV KURTOSIS MEAN MEDIAN SKEWNESS STANDARD VAR

Did I miss any? Is this list somewhere in the UG?

Rick is absolutely right. But there are already some IML version of these function . Like :

x = {1 0,

2 1,

4 2,

8 3,

16 . };

kurt = kurtosis(x);

print kurt;

x = {5 1 10,

6 2 3,

6 8 5,

6 7 9,

7 2 13};

mean = mean(x);

print mean;

x = {1 3,

2 3,

4 9,

10 0};

med = median(x);

print med;

They are all column operation .

I assume you are primarily interested in descriptive statistics for each column. You can add the following functions:

COUNTMISS

COUNTN

COUNTUNIQUE

MAD

QNTL

QUARTILE

Also, subscript reduction operators enable you to perform columnwise operations:

SUM via x[+, ];

PROD via x[#, ];

MAX via x[<>, ];

MIN via x[><, ];

Index of maximum via x[<, ];

Index of minimum via x[>:<, ];

SSQ via x[##, ];

Rick -- thank you -- great reply -- this is exactly what I'm interested in.

BTW, I found QNTL last night going through your helpful** tip sheet**.

If I don't make a mistake, these data step function also could be applied to IML.

Check it at the bottom of IML documentation, you can find them all.

All of the DATA step function are applied elementwise. For example, if x is a matrix then y=sin(x) returns a matrix of the same size such that y[i,j] = sin(x[i,j]). The OP is asking about functions that operate on each column of an (n x p) matrix and produce a (1 x p) vector of results.
