I want to calculate the proportions of positive alphas. So the number in my column are (0,1)

For example,

A

1

0

1

0

so, the proportion of positive alphas is equal to sum of A /number of observations(which is 4 here)=2/4

simplest solution, IMO:

proc sql;

/* create table want as */

select sum(a) from have;

quit;
