Is there a way to add a column variable in proc tabulate that is not on the raw data?

 

I have a gender categories of Female, Male and Unknown.  I would like to display the Unknown column and it is not on my raw data.

Is there a way to do this?

PRELOADFMT or COMPLETETYPES are the terms that you can google with PROC TABULATE.

If your  "unknown" means that the variable that holds gender has the value missing then one way is to do three things assuming this is used as a Class variable:

1) on the Class statement add the MISSING option so missing is included in the report. This would look like:

Class gender / missing;

2) create a format that displays missing values as "Unknown"

3) associate the format with the variable with a format statement.

Example

proc format;
value $missgender
' ' = 'Unknown'
;
run;

data example;
   input gender $ varx;
datalines;
Female  123
Male    456
.       111
;

proc tabulate data=example;
   class gender/missing;
   format gender $missgender.;
   var varx;
   table gender,
         varx*mean
   ;
run;
