Finding number of firms for each country

I want to calculate No and percentage of firms for each country. (each firm is repeated by many time due to its data for several years)

My data contain several countries from year 2000 to 2015.

there is dummy variable of fam which is 0 for non family and 1 for family.

i want to make table in this format. These are just hypothetical values for reference.  the attached file contain excel data in excel and cvs format. here percentage means percentage of family firms and non-family firms to overall sample firms. 

 Country       Fam            Non family

 HKG             50                 80

                      6%                9%               

 IDN               70                 110

                      7%                 11%

Post your data at this forum. No one would like to download a file from website.



proc import datafile='/folders/myfolders/new.csv' out=have dbms=csv replace;
run;
proc format;
value fmt
 0-1=[percent8.2];
value fam
 0='Non_Fam'
 1='Fam';
run;
proc sql;
create table temp as
 select 1 as group,country,fam,count(distinct company) as v
  from have
   where country is not missing
    group by country,fam
union all
 select 2 as group,country,fam,
 count(distinct company)/(select count(distinct company) from have) as v 
  from have
   where country is not missing
    group by country,fam
order by 2,1  
;
quit;
proc transpose data=temp out=want(drop=_: group);
 by country group;
 var v;
 id fam;
 format fam fam.;
