## Looking for help to solve a problem using SAS data set

Hello good people,

Recently, I have started using SAS for analyzing data and I did not have any prior experience regarding using SAS for data analysis. I will really appreciate if anyone please help me to solve the problem below. I want to show the effect of average snow depth on bulk density (with three depths 0-5, 5-10 and 10-20).  Basically, I will have to find out that bulk density will increase or decrease for average snow depth. I have also attached the data file here.

data Data;
Input plot \$ BD_zero_to_five BD_five_to_ten BD_ten_to_twenty \$ Average_snow_depth;

datalines;
1 1.58 2.29 1.59 12
1 1.20 1.81 1.41 12
1 1.28 1.33 1.82 12
1 1.46 1.97 1.39 12
1 1.17 1.54 1.09 12
1 1.28 1.59 1.23 12
1 1.41 1.53 1.67 12
1 1.21 1.37 1.40 12

Is this just a part of your data? Because as it is, Average_snow_depth is a constant value of 12, and no such analysis is possible.

yes, that's  a part but the rest of the data for average snow depth is also constant

Without a change in a certain column, there's nothing to analyze. "All roads lead to Rome", so it doesn't matter which one you take, so to say.
