I'm having an issue with proc summary in SAS 9.4. My code is:
proc summary data=project.new nway completetypes; class product_group product_id region district sales_channel status; var count premium age_policyholder_analysis_date_G duration_G; output out=project.test1 sum(premium muzi zeny)=sum_premium muzi zeny mean(age_policyholder_analysis_date_G duration_G)=mean_age mean_duration; run;
I'm trying to create an "aggregation" but the problem is when using completetypes statement. I get combination of each variables - also combination of "region" and "district" variables which makes no sense because for example distrct "Bratislava" doesn't exist in region "Banskobystrický" (see attached screenshot).
But when I do not use completetypes statement I don't get missing sums (in district "Brezno" for example) which I need.
Is there a way to use some sort of regional hierarchy or something?

What about eliminating REGION from your summary? You can later join it back in by means of a lookup table or a format that maps regions to districts. Same could apply to the product_group-porduct_id hierarchy.
Hope this helps,
