I am a newbie, who is using proc univariate to create a histogram but I'm having issues. My problem is that all the observations are bunched up under one bin/bar. Can anyone please guide me what could be the issue? Thank you in advance for your help!

1) specify step width. data class; set sashelp.class end=last; output; if last then do;age=30;output;end; run; proc univariate data=class; var age; histogram age/ endpoints=(0 to 30 by 1) ; run; 2) Your data is discrete not continuous, it is not good for Histogram, but for VBAR chart. proc sgplot data=class; vbar age/ stat=percent; run;

ENDPOINTS & MIDPOINTS must cover the full interval otherwise SAS ignores it. There will be a message in the log to that effect.
So, exclude your outliers with a WHERE statement.
Where variable< 10000;
