Proc Surveyreg with Plots option

Has anyone used Proc Surveyreg with Plots options for graphs?  I tried it with ODS graphics on but it didn't work. I also tried LSMEANS statement but SAS told me it is a wrong syntax.

I used SAS 9.3 version.  Anyone can help?

Re: Proc Surveyreg with Plots option

According to SAS support:

SAS/STAT(R) 9.22 User's Guide

You need to use the LSMEANS statement with the PLOT option,

like this:

data IceCreamDataDomain;

  input Grade Spending Income Gender$ @@;

  datalines;

7 7 39 M 7 7 38 F 8 12 47 F

9 10 47 M 7 1 34 M 7 10 43 M

7 3 44 M 8 20 60 F 8 19 57 M

7 2 35 M 7 2 36 F 9 15 51 F

8 16 53 F 7 6 37 F 7 6 41 M

7 6 39 M 9 15 50 M 8 17 57 F

8 14 46 M 9 8 41 M 9 8 41 F

9 7 47 F 7 3 39 F 7 12 50 M

7 4 43 M 9 14 46 F 8 18 58 M

9 9 44 F 7 2 37 F 7 1 37 M

7 4 44 M 7 11 42 M 9 8 41 M

8 10 42 M 8 13 46 F 7 2 40 F

9 6 45 F 9 11 45 M 7 2 36 F

7 9 46 F

;

data StudentTotals;

  input Grade _TOTAL_;

  datalines;

7 1824

8 1025

9 1151

;

data IceCreamDataDomain;

  set IceCreamDataDomain;

  if Grade=7 then Prob=20/1824;

  if Grade=8 then Prob=9/1025;

  if Grade=9 then Prob=11/1151;

  Weight=1/Prob;

run;

title1 'Ice Cream Spending Analysis';

title2 'Compare Domain Statistics';

proc surveyreg data=IceCreamDataDomain total=StudentTotals;

  strata Grade;

  class Gender;

  model Spending = Gender / vadjust=none;

  lsmeans Gender / diff plots=(diff meanplot(cl));

  weight Weight;

run;

I hope this helps;

Re: Proc Surveyreg with Plots option

Thank you, Anca! This is exactly what I did based on the SAS User Guide. But it didn't work. SAS log indicated wrong syntax. This is frustrating but I will try to run it again.

Re: Proc Surveyreg with Plots option

It would help if you posted the LOG (or some part of it - mainly containing the error) so we can figure out what syntax I wrong.

Re: Proc Surveyreg with Plots option

I tried to run proc surveyreg with plots option:

ods graphics on;

proc surveyreg plots=fit;

  model height=weight;

run;

ods graphics off;

But I get error, the log indicates as follow:

3330  ods graphics on;

3331  proc surveyreg plots=fit;

                     -----

                     22

                     76

ERROR 22-322: Syntax error, expecting one of the following: ;, ALPHA, DATA, METHOD, MISSING, N,

              NOMCAR, ORDER, R, TRUNCATE, VARMETHOD.

ERROR 76-322: Syntax error, statement will be ignored.

3332     model height=weight;

Why is SAS didn't have option PLOTS for me? Again, I have SAS 9.3

Thank you

Re: Proc Surveyreg with Plots option

Try using

Proc surveyreg  data = yourdata plots =....

Maybe it needs you to specify the data...

Re: Proc Surveyreg with Plots option

I specified the dataset name but it still gave me the same error. I am out of ideas

Re: Proc Surveyreg with Plots option

There is no plots= option in the proc surveyreg statement in version 9.3. A fitplot was introduced in version 13, and for models involving a single regressor only (such as yours).

As a workaround, look into the effectplot of proc plm.

Re: Proc Surveyreg with Plots option

Thank you very much for solving the puzzle for me. I will find another way, may be sgplot to graph the fitplot. I am not familiar with proc plm but I will look into it.

Re: Proc Surveyreg with Plots option

If you're using proc surveyreg as noted in your example above I don't believe you need surveyreg, but proc reg will suffice.

If you have a strata, wieght, cluster, contrast or domain statement as well then you probably need surveyreg.

Re: Proc Surveyreg with Plots option

Thank you Reeze. I do need to use surveyreg with strata, cluster, weight and domain statements for analyzing NHANES data.

Re: Proc Surveyreg with Plots option

As noted,the plots option goes with the lsmeans statement,as I initially posted.

Re: Proc Surveyreg with Plots option

Anca, thank you for pointing that out. I did use lsmeans statement with plots option but it did not generate fitplot which what I need.

SAS should revise their 13.1 user guide because here, it says that PLOTS is one of the options available in the proc surveyreg statement.
