Split Data Set

Would anyone be able to assist me with the following test results?  I was attempting to split my data into a 70/30 training/test data set, but when I run the results, the only set that comes up for me is the "70%" training results even though I can see that it removed 200+ observations for the test data set. How do I get SAS to produce the remaining data set of results for me?  I was told it would do so automatically, but all that comes up is the first set.

Thanks so much

You've pulled out the non-training data with a WHERE clause on the proc rank step but the results should be there otherwise.

I'm not 100% sure but changing the where clause to a BY statement for the proc rank may be what you want. This would then calculate your ranks and corresponding lift for each group independently.

Following statement in your syntax removing your testing dataset when you are using temp dataset in proc logistic

* Create a response indicator based on the training/testing split;

if (train=1) then Y_train=Y; else Y_train=.;

Re: Split Data Set

That removes them from being used in fitting the model as there isn't a response, but they will be included in the output in other data sets won't they?

This is a common trick for getting predictions from a proc.

Re: Split Data Set

Thanks Reeza - I was not aware about this.
