Quick Question:

I have a data set where I want to reduce the initial set of inputs using proc varclus.  Should I use proc varclus to reduce only numeric interval level variables or can I include dichotmous variables as well?  I thought it should be used only for numeric interval-level variables, but just saw a sas demo that included many dichotmous variables.  Any suggestions?  Thanks in advance!

As far as I know, VARCLUS only uses numeric variables.
