I'd like to output the Pearson and Spearman coefficients that are provided in the proc freq measures option output to a dataset.  I'm comparing the association between a number of variables.

 

The code is a simple proc freq.

 

proc freq data=set;

table var1*(var2 var3 var4 var5 var6)/measures;

run;

 

Is there a way to save the Pearson and Spearman coefficients from the measures output to a dataset?  Ultimately, I'd like to create an ordered list of var2-var6 based on their Pearson and Spearman coefficients.

You can use ODS OUTPUT. 

 

proc freq data=sashelp.cars;
table type*(origin drivetrain cylinders) / out=want measures;
ods output measures=want2;
run;

proc print data=want;
proc print data=want2;
run;

ODS OUTPUT is the way to go.

 

ods trace on;
ods output measures=measures;
proc freq data=sashelp.class;

table sex*(height weight)/measures;

run;
ods trace off;

I leave the ODS TRACE ON statements there so you can see how to get the name.

Thanks so much, both of these solutions worked for me.
