The output of PROC PHREG, when the option SIMPLE and the CLASS statement are invoked, causes the display of simple frequencies of the class variables. These frequencies are simple counts, so probably should have no decimal places. However, mine are coming out with anywhere from 1 to 4 decimal places - all of course are zeros. Does anyone else have this issue? Is this a problem with the style I might be using or perhaps a problem in the PHREG template?

Just checked and I have the same issue, using SAS 9.2.3 no styles applied.
Sounds like a bit of a bug to me, I recommend opening a track with tech support.
I didn't even know there was the simple option though!
I usually do a proc freq on my data, then proc lifetest on each variable then proc phreg, so by the time I get to that point I don't want that info anyways.
