What proc shows only 'most popular' variables (SAS V9)

I am trying to figure out what procedure I need to use ... I have a database of emerg patients, and it contains their diagnosis, severity levels 1-5, and admission status.  I need to identify the top 10 diagnosis by volume, include their distribution of severity level, with a percent admission by diagnosis and percent admission by total volume of emerg patients.  It's the top 10 that is really stumping me.... any suggestions?

Thanks a million.

Without digging to deep into your requirement, PROC RANK will help you rank your top ten.

If your rank is based on a simple frequency count of contributing records, PROC FREQ/SUMMARY/SQL could do the trick.
