# Output Out Using PROC SURVEYFREQ

[ Edited ]

Can I ouput Weighted Frequency and other values from a PROC SURVEYFREQ table?

I am doing a 3 way comparison using PROC SURVEYFREQ - TABLES flag*year*age_cat*injury;

This produces a table w/ the frequency of injuries in each age category (i.e. age_cat)  by year. Ulitmately, I want an outputted dataset with the Weighted Freqency and Percent for injury for each age category and year.

My ideal output would look like this:

year      age_cat    weighted frequency  percent

2002     0-2               125,000                      5.34

2002     3-10             127,000                      x.xx

2002     11-16           145,000                      x.xx

2002     17-21           115,000                      x.xx

2003     0-2               155,000                      7.34

2003     3-10             177,000                      x.xx

2003     11-16           115,000                      x.xx

2003     17-21           105,000                      x.xx

etc.

Thanks!

Find the correct table name using ODS TRACE.

What exactly are you having trouble with then?

I don't know the correct syntax. I've never used PROC SURVEYFREQ to output to a dataset before...

## Re: Output Out Using PROC SURVEYFREQ

You're switching to proc freq/surveyfreq, which one are you trying to run?

What have you tried?

I'm running PROC SURVEYFREQ. Sorry for the confusion.

How do I identify, and output, the values I want? For example, how do I tell SAS I want the "Weighted Frequency" and the "Percent" in a new dataset named "want"? Are these listed as options in the TABLES statement? How do I specify that I want these values for the varialbe injury?

Something like this?

Tables flag*year*age_cat*injury / OUT=want, weightedfreq pct;

I have tried using ODS per these instructions, but I can only make it work for a oneway table. I don't know which keyword to use for what I DO want. I've tried "twoway", "fourway", "nway", each time the log states that output "twoway", for example, was not created.

`ods output OneWay=WantTable;`

Actually, I didn't find the answer here, you did.

If possible post what code you ended up using and mark that as the correct solution.
