# Proc format and proc freq

Looking to see if anyone knows of an easy way to do the following...

I have a format set up for ranges on "score".

I do a proc freq on score and see the ranges for my scores.  Now, I'm being requested to show ALL my ranges, regardless of whether or not a score is present.  If a score does not exist for a range then it should show as zero.  Example below:

Proc format ;

value scorefmt

0 -< 10 = "0 - 10"

10 -< 20 = "10 - 20"

20 -< 30 = "20 - 30"

30 -< 40 = "30 - 40"

40 - HIGH = "40+" ;

run ;

data dataset1 ;

length score 8 ;

input score ;

format score scorefmt. ;

datalines ;

1

10

11

19

45

;

run ;

proc format data = dataset1 ;

tables score / list missing ;

run ;

shows:

Cumulative    Cumulative

score    Frequency     Percent     Frequency      Percent
ƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒ

0 - 10            1       20.00             1        20.00

10 - 20           3       60.00             4        80.00

40+               1       20.00             5       100.00

What I would LIKE to see:

Cumulative    Cumulative

score    Frequency     Percent     Frequency      Percent
ƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒƒ

0 - 10            1       20.00             1        20.00

10 - 20           3       60.00             4        80.00

20 - 30          0          0                    4     80.00

40+               1       20.00             5       100.00

## Re: Proc format and proc freq

You want a procedure that lets you use PRELOADFMT option for class type variables. Which means procs tabulate, report or means.

Roughly equivalent for your freq, though it doesn't generate the cumulative bits

proc tabulate data=dataset1;

format score scorefmt.;

table score, n pctn / printmiss;

run;
