I'm trying to calculate the standardized incidence rate(crude of death) for my data set, for people on a treatment vs not on the treatment,compare to a reference group.
my sas version doesn't have " proc stdrate".
can anyone help with how to calculate that using SAS? sample code will be appreciated.
I have never done this before and know don't know very much about calculating the rates.

What what version of SAS do you have? If you run the following do you see SAS/STAT?
It seems weird that some dealing with this type of info wouldn't have SAS/STAT

thanks Reeza for reponding.
I'm using SAS (r) Proprietary Software 9.3 (TS1M0). I looked on the support SAS website and proc stdrate is avalable from 9.3 TS1M1.

So there are macro's for doing this but it's a relatively easy calculation so you can pick your poison.

PROC STDRATE was introduced in SAS/STAT 12.1, which was released in 2012 as part of SAS 9.3m2. SAS versions prior to that release will not contain PROC STDRATE.
