Hi everyone,

OK, so plotting a graph, pretty straightforward:

X axis = concentration of the chemical (log transformed)

Y axis = percent mortality

BUT - how do I calculate the actual slope? Could you offer me code to do that? I am using SAS version 9.3 on a PC.

Example data points:

x = 4.20, y = 10

x = 4.27, y = 20

x = 4.29, y = 30

x = 4.58, y = 40

x = 4.73, y = 50

x = 4.82, y = 60

Thank you!

Peppy

m = (y2-y1)/(x2-x1) or assuming you have the pairs and want the slope from the previous point;

data want;

     set have;

     slope = (y - lag(y))/(x-lag(x));

run;

4.20 10
4.27 20
4.29 30
4.58 40
4.73 50
4.82 60
;

ods output parameterEstimates=slope;
proc reg data=have;
model y=x;
run;

proc print data=slope;
run;

Slope dataset will have intercept and slope.

I couldn't find an easy way to add the slope in to the graph automatically.  GPLOT provides the entire regression equation but its at the bottom and not pretty.

data have;

input x y;

cards;

4.20 10

4.27 20

4.29 30

4.58 40

4.73 50

4.82 60

;

run;

ods output parameterEstimates=slope;

proc reg data=have;

model y=x;

run;

proc sql noprint;;

    select Estimate into :slope from slope where variable='x';

quit;

proc sgplot data=have;

    scatter x=x y=y;

    reg x=x y=y/degree=1 curvelabel="Slope=&slope" curvelabelpos=end;

run;quit;
