Proc means: How to capture non default statistics such as nmiss p1 p99 etc?

By default Proc Means outputs N, MIN, MEAN, MAX and STD in the output dataset. How do I add, NMISS, P1, P5 etc to this list?

Thanks!

Re: Proc means: How to capture non default statistics such as nmiss p1 p99 etc?

Put the statistics on the output statement, actually you'll want to add the defaults as well.

output out=dataset name nmiss= p1= p5= /autoname ;

The autoname is so you don't have to think of output variable names for each variable/ statistic

if you want certain statistics only for some variables then request the statistic as nmiss(var1 var2) =.
