I want to perform a multivariate regression analysis with two (or three) dependent variables and numerous independent variables but the linear regression option in SAS Viya only allows for the input of a single dependent variable. I don't see other options within this platform to attempt the analysis. Is there an option for multivariate regression within SAS Viya? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I don't use Visual Analytics, but mathematically multiple Y variables in regression is the same as multiple regressions each with one Y variable.

Again, a "formal multivariate regression" with multiple Y variables is mathematically the same as a single regression with each one of the Y variables. The fact that you are using SAS Visual Analytics doesn't change this. I don't know how you do this in VA, or if the VA solution fits your needs, but the math is as explained.
