I have data that looks like this with duplicate ID.

ID is unique to an individual, test is dichotomous and score is continuous 

id test score

1   2    3

1   1     2

1    2     9

2   1     5

3    2    3

4   1     3

4   1     8

 

I need It too look like this

id test score test2 score2  test3 score3

1   2     3        1     2             2        9

2   1     5

3    2    3

4   1     3        1     8

Hi cesararevalo

I hope this helps, here is the code which produces your output

data have;
input id test score;
datalines;
1 2 3
1 1 2
1 2 9
2 1 5
3 2 3
4 1 3
4 1 8
;
run;
proc transpose data=have out=want (drop=_NAME_) prefix=score;
By id;
var score ;
run;
proc transpose data=have out=want1 (drop=_NAME_) prefix=test;
By id;
var test ;
run;

data final;
retain id test1 score1 test2 score2 test3 score3 ;
merge want want1;
run;

 

The output is same as you wanted

idtest1score1test2score2test3score3
1231229
215....
323....
41318..

Just to continue my obnoxious streak of asking this question: What exactly to you expect to do with this wide structure that can't be done with the existing structure?
