title 'Fish Measurement Data';
proc corr data=fish1 nomiss plots=matrix;
var Height Width Length3 Weight3;

ods graphics off;
ods html close;

From Proc Corr doc., ex 1.7

However, this is for continuous data and your data is categorical. Check also proc freq with the measures option

Re: request for survey data anlysis

tjeller is right.Your data is ordinal categorical data ,better to use proc freq' measure options.
and what is your meaning at the first question?Does say the frequencies of each group of the satisfoed and informed? then use list option.
proc freq data=sashelp.class;
tables sex*name /list;
