Hello,

I would like to find the mean for one of my variables, but that variable has one outlier observation.

How can I find the mean of that variable without that one observation with PROC MEAN.

Thank you

how about using the where clause.

PROC MEANS DATA=_LAST_(where=(myvar ^= xxx));

I want to eliminate a specific observation from a specific sets of variable. Not really eliminate but rather exclude from the analysis.

PROC MEANS DATA=data(where=(people^='Jim' ));var item1; Run;
