Calcite | Level 5


I need to run a linear regression with two categorical variables with 3 plus levels and one continuous variable on a continuous response variable, and is Thus using proc GLM.


Continuous variables:

- Price

- rating


Categorical varibles:

- product=(agriculture, rental, industry)

- customer_segment=(key, focus, corporate)


Is it possible to run the following regression, and if so how do you specify the interaction terms:


Proc GLM data=model1_data2 alpha=0.75;

class product customer_segment;

model price=rating product customer_segment industry*rating industry*key / solution;

output out=model1_v2_out r=res p=benchmark2 lcl=Q25 ucl=Q75;

Data model1_data2;

set model1_v2_out;



So my issue is that i don't know how to specify interaction terms only involving specific levels of the categorical variable.

Hopes this makes sence.

I'm using SAS 9.4

Many procedures output coded variables.  You can then process the output data set to drop terms.  Personally, I like transreg because 1) I wrote it, 2) it has nice names and labels for terms, and 3) it outputs a macro variable with all of the terms in the model.
