Warning from Proc transreg

Dear all,

How are you?

Can I please ask if the "recommended" power transformation for the response from proc transreg boxcox will be affected given this warning?

  • WARNING: The BOXCOX LAMBDA= list contains extreme values.  Large values may cause overflows.

Please enlighten me on how it can be addressed.

Thank you very much.

Re: Warning from Proc transreg

You have extremely large (or small) values that when transformed are driving the estimation of lambda.  On back-transforming, you may get an exponential overflow.
