Can someone help me update this code for SAS 9.2 or suggest better. I found it on the web in Google Groups from 1998.

*****************

Proc mixed doesn't compute lsd directly, but it can be done using info. generated by the make statement. Look at this example:

proc mixed;

...

make "diffs" out=diffs;

quit;

data calc_lsd;

set;

lsd=_se_*tinv(1-.05/2,_df_);

**************

Thanks

Replace the old make statement with an ODS OUTPUT statement:

ods output diffs=diffs;

And then use:

data calc_lsd;

set diffs;

lsd=stderr*tinv(1 -0.5/2,df);

run;

Thank you very much!

The program ran the code, but produced no output.

Can you provide code to generate output?

Add a proc print.

proc print data=calc_lsd;

var lsd estimate stderr df;

run;

Many thanks for this.

Different values of LSD have been printed. which one to consider. The min of all the LSD?

Thanks

You probably have different values for the standard error of the differences, as a result of unequal observations in the effects you are comparing. Consequently, the LSD will differ from case to case. Sharing some more code, especially your PROC MIXED code, and some info on the design could help clarify this.

Many thanks Steve.

below is the dode:

Proc mixed;

class block variety;

model yield=variety;

random block;

lsmeans variety/pdiff;

ods output Diffs=d;

run;

This is an augmented design where 200 varieties and 5 checks have been tested in an Augmented randomized complete block design. The 200 varieties have been unreplicated in 20 blocks of 10 plots each. Each block has been completed by the 5 checks. Hence a total of 300 plots (200+5*20). Thanks

So in the lsmeans table, are the standard errors of the varieties all equal? If not, then there is probably some missing data (variety within a block), so that the standard error of the difference is not constant. Also, are the 5 checks all identical check varieties? This also leads to unequal replication, unequal standard errors of the differences, and consequently, different LSDs.

Also, in a design of this type, block by variety is often included, since not all varieties are seen in each block, but the check varieties are, and this may represent a better source of residual error. Emphasis on the word may, there.

Thanks and well noted. The 5 checks are all identical, but some missing data. Then in this case, it makes sense to have different LSDs. many thanks again. Gaston

hi is the above code used for LSD at 0.05 or 0.1 ? I would like to obtain the LSD value at 0.1 thanks

In the equation

lsd=_se_*tinv(1-.05/2,_df_);

the value 0.05 represents the significance level, often denote by "alpha." So the answer to your question is that the LSD is for alpha=0.05. Use alpha=0.1 to get the LSD value that you are asking for.

Hi Steve, Please is the 0.05 in the lsd equation for 5% significant level?, can it be changed to lsd=stderr*tinv(1-0.1/2,df). Thanks
