Hello I have this variable Hosp_adm which I want to convert to nummeric.
The data is below:
format new_Hosp_adm date9.;
Please can anyone correct the code for me???
SAS stores calendar dates as numeric values. That is, a date is stored as a value that represents the number of days since the calendar date January 1, 1960. For example, the value for January 1, 1960 is 0. The value for January 1, 1961 is 366. SAS converts date values back and forth between calendar dates with SAS informats and formats. If you do a PROC CONTENTS on your data set, you will probably see that the variable is a numeric with an informat applied to it. You should be able to perform calculations on the column.
