Getting simple estimated means from Proc Reg or similar procedure

Hello SAS community!

 

I am constantly working with regression, and having to calculate "estimated means" to help with interpreting slopes. For instance, if I do this:

 

Proc reg; model continuous_dependent_variable = z-scored_neuroticism ;run;

 

The output, of course, gives me an intercept estimate and a slope for the predictor. If the predictor is z-scored, one can take the intercept and add the slope to it to estimate the level of the the DV expected at +1 standard deviation of the predictor. The slope can be subtracted from the intercept to get an estimated DV mean at low (-1 sd) neuroticism.

 

My question is, does anybody know if SAS is capable of automatically outputting estimated means? Even for 2 or 3-way interactions?

 

Thanks, all

LSMEANS or ESTIMATE statements within PRO GLM?
