Pie chart: mean and std of another variable

Hi Guys,

Sorry for another pretty newbie post but this situation really stumps me.

I was given data and asked to create relative frequency charts, which I did as you can see from the code.

However, I was also asked to create a Pie chart in which I would have to display the relative frequency (which is percent=inside, not a problem) as well as the average age given a one of the variables (sex, marital status, country, size type) and the standard deviation of the ages.

Basically, the pie charts I have now show what my professor wants but I would also need to show another variable, age, and its mean and standard deviation. I've been looking through the help file for hours and am stumped. Any help would be met with much joy and great appreciation!

Hi:
There is a separate forum for SAS/GRAPH and ODS GRAPHICS questions and you might want to post this question over there.
