Hi I am trying to get a feel for my data and the number of unique observations

I am wanting to

  1. count the number of firms (the variable is called cusip).
  2. count the number of firm names (the variable is called firms)

Any help is appreciated

PROC FREQ and PROC UNIVARIATE are two very useful procedures when it comes to data exploration.
