Proc Crosstab- SAS-callable SUDAAN timing issue

Hello everyone!

I hope this is the right place for my question. I am fairly new to using SUDAAN and I was wondering if anyone has had any timing issues with proc crosstab. It takes about three minutes per a procedure which seems like a lot of downtime.

Thank you very much!

Donald S.

It has been awhile since I used SAS callable SUDAAN but depending on the dataset size and the number of variables used that doesn't sound unreasonable. A large amount of the time used may be coming from formatting the output not the actual summaries. If you are using the output text you might consider using a noprint and directing the output to a SAS dataset to improve the response time. The output dataset might require a tad bit of manipulation for printing though.
