Efficient way to predict a Categorical variable using continuous independant variable

Hey guys...

I have to build a model to predict a categorical information (income size) on a group of people using continuous variables like sales, units etc.. which is the best way to do it in sas?


I tried biulding a GLM, but couldn't interpret the results...any help on this?

Another method I tried was replacing the categorical information with numbers and try biulding a normal regression analysis on it, will that work?

Thanks in advance!
