how to get one boxplot with several identical variables for two groups

hey all,

I want to get a plot like the following but with boxplots instead of bars:

boxplot.jpg

So I have 2 outcome groups and 6 identical variables per group.

I tried several syntax codes but I could not handle to get all this in one graphic. And I also tried different orderings of variables. But the BY statement only produces several pics that I don't want and in the PLOT statement it is not possible to put 3 variables like outcome * variable * valuesOfVariable.

I found something like valuesOfVariable*Variable=Outcome, but this did not work, too.

Does someone have an idea?

greetings, Eski

Re: how to get one boxplot with several identical variables for two groups

You may need to restructure data as the SAS graphing procedures tend to prefer one variable to tell which group of data is summarized/displayed and values associated with that grouping variable.

You might also look at sgpanel and create a separate graph for the levels of your outcome variable.
