Using proc ttest

Suppose we have variables ID X Y and our data looks like this:

003 42 34

004 54 65

005 33 46

. . .

I want to perform a paired and unpaired t-test on the X and Y variables without a data step (this is part of the question).. I understand

how to do a paired, but how can you do an unpaired t-test, as in X and Y are just different sets of sample data? es

Re: Using proc ttest

You need to transform your data so that you have your variables stacked and a new variable that identifies the groups:

ID Var Value

1 X 1

1 Y 2

1 X 3

1 Y 4
