I was working on a homework problem with SAS macros and ran into some issues. Can someone help me troubleshoot the problem? Here is the homework problem: 

 

 

A team of investigators conducted a longitudinal study over 6 study time points (0 months or “baseline”, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 8 months, and 10 months) of 100 patients with HIV to examine the relative efficacy of three treatment regimens in increasing CD4 counts: group=1, control; group=2, treatment with one drug per month; group=3, treatment with two drugs per month.  The primary question of interest was to test whether or not the pattern of mean CD4 values over time was different across the 3 study groups.

 

The data is stored in a file called, “hivstudy_sum18.txt”, The data are in the file are arranged with multiple rows per subject in list format in the following order: patient ID; study month; CD4 count; group. 

 

Here is the data from the text file:

Here is the specific homework question I had issues on: 

 

Write and execute a SAS macro to generate models for the interaction of study month as a continuous variable and treatment group that use generalized estimating equations (GEE) in SAS for CD4 count as a continuous, dependent variable employing four different working correlation structures: independence (IND); exchangeable (EXCH); autoregressive-1 (AR(1)); and unstructured (UNSTR).

 

Here is my code for this particular problem: 

 

filename HW12 'C:\Users\jackz\Desktop\SAS\hivstudy_sum18.txt';
*Part A: Reading in Data; 
proc format; 
    value grpf 0='control group' 1='one drug per month' 2='two drugs per month'; 
run; 
data one; 
    infile HW12; 
    input id month CD4 grp @@; 
label id='Patient ID'
      month='Study Month'
      CD4='CD4 Count'
      grp='Study Group';
run; 
*Printout of Dataset One;
title 'Printout of Dataset One'; 
proc print data=one; 
    run; 
%macro exper(datain,idm, monthm, grpm, CD4m);
proc sort data=&datain;
    by &idm &grpm; 
run; 
proc genmod data=&datain order=freq; 
class &grpm &monthm &idm; 
model &CD4m=&monthm &grpm &grpm*&monthm/type3; 
repeated subject=&idm/ within=&grp type=ar(1) corrw; 
run; 
proc genmod data=&datain order=freq; 
class &grpm &monthm &idm; 
model &CD4m=&monthm &grpm &grpm*&monthm/type3; 
repeated subject=&idm/ within=&grp type=IND corrw; 
run; 
proc genmod data=&datain order=freq; 
class &grpm &monthm &idm;

run; 
proc genmod data=&datain order=freq; 
class &grpm &monthm &idm; 
model &CD4m=&monthm &grpm &grpm*&monthm/type3; 
repeated subject=&idm/ within=&grp type=UNSTR corrw; 
run; 
%mend exper; 
%exper(one, id, month, grp, CD4); 

 When I ran this code, I received these errors:

Can someone provide some hints as to where I went wrong? Thanks!

You want to learn a couple of tools for working with macros. You will get better debugging if setting some options prior to running a macro (and then turning them off). The two most commonly helpful are MPRINT and SYMBOLGEN for determining what code text s being created by the macro. Another is MLOGIC to see the results of macro logic tests.

 

Example:

Options mprint symbolgen;

 %exper(one, id, month, grp, CD4);

Options nomprint nosymbolgen;

 

With that out of the way, examine:

%macro exper(datain,idm, monthm, grpm, CD4m);
proc sort data=&datain;
    by &idm &grpm; 
run; 
proc genmod data=&datain order=freq; 
class &grpm &monthm &idm; 
model &CD4m=&monthm &grpm &grpm*&monthm/type3; 
repeated subject=&idm/ within=&grp type=ar(1) corrw; 
run; 

You are using a macro variable &grp without defining it. If you are meaning to use the DATASET variable GRP then remove the & from all of the &grp (not the &grpm which you do define). If you mean that to be &grpm then make the spelling change.

 

 

If you had run the code with the MPRINT option you would have seen that the generated code looked something like:

repeated subject=id/  within= type=ar(1) corrw;

Which why the error is expected name. No value for the &grp meant no data set variable was used with the WITHIN= option.

The error message seems pretty clear to me

The macro processor is complaining that the macro variable GRP is not defined.

And SAS is complaining that WITHIN=&grp is invalid syntax for the REPEATED statement of PROC GENMOD.

Your macro variable is missing the M. 

 

The last one should be &grpM not &grp. 

 

%macro exper(datain,idm, monthm, grpm, CD4m);
proc sort data=&datain;
    by &idm &grpm; 
run; 
proc genmod data=&datain order=freq;

I was working on a homework problem with SAS macros and ran into some issues. Can someone help me troubleshoot the problem? Here is the homework problem: 

 

 

A team of investigators conducted a longitudinal study over 6 study time points (0 months or “baseline”, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 8 months, and 10 months) of 100 patients with HIV to examine the relative efficacy of three treatment regimens in increasing CD4 counts: group=1, control; group=2, treatment with one drug per month; group=3, treatment with two drugs per month.  The primary question of interest was to test whether or not the pattern of mean CD4 values over time was different across the 3 study groups.

 

The data is stored in a file called, “hivstudy_sum18.txt”, The data are in the file are arranged with multiple rows per subject in list format in the following order: patient ID; study month; CD4 count; group. 

 

Here is the data from the text file:

Here is the specific homework question I had issues on: 

 

Write and execute a SAS macro to generate models for the interaction of study month as a continuous variable and treatment group that use generalized estimating equations (GEE) in SAS for CD4 count as a continuous, dependent variable employing four different working correlation structures: independence (IND); exchangeable (EXCH); autoregressive-1 (AR(1)); and unstructured (UNSTR).

 

Here is my code for this particular problem: 

 

filename HW12 'C:\Users\jackz\Desktop\SAS\hivstudy_sum18.txt';
*Part A: Reading in Data; 
proc format; 
    value grpf 0='control group' 1='one drug per month' 2='two drugs per month'; 
run; 
data one; 
    infile HW12; 
    input id month CD4 grp @@; 
label id='Patient ID'
      month='Study Month'
      CD4='CD4 Count'
      grp='Study Group';
run; 
*Printout of Dataset One;
title 'Printout of Dataset One'; 
proc print data=one; 
    run; 
%macro exper(datain,idm, monthm, grpm, CD4m);
proc sort data=&datain;
    by &idm &grpm; 
run; 
proc genmod data=&datain order=freq; 
class &grpm &monthm &idm; 
model &CD4m=&monthm &grpm &grpm*&monthm/type3; 
repeated subject=&idm/ within=&grp type=ar(1) corrw; 
run; 
proc genmod data=&datain order=freq; 
class &grpm &monthm &idm; 
model &CD4m=&monthm &grpm &grpm*&monthm/type3; 
repeated subject=&idm/ within=&grp type=IND corrw; 
run; 
proc genmod data=&datain order=freq; 
class &grpm &monthm &idm; 
model &CD4m=&monthm &grpm &grpm*&monthm/type3; 
repeated subject=&idm/ within=&grp type=EXCH corrw; 
run; 
proc genmod data=&datain order=freq; 
class &grpm &monthm &idm; 
model &CD4m=&monthm &grpm &grpm*&monthm/type3; 
repeated subject=&idm/ within=&grp type=UNSTR corrw; 
run; 
%mend exper; 
%exper(one, id, month, grp, CD4); 

 When I ran this code, I received these errors:

Can someone provide some hints as to where I went wrong? Thanks!

First you should get help on homework by the one that gave you the homework.
The the message IMO quite clear. GRP hasn't been given a value. Why is up to you to figure out.
