It is the workhorse of ODS graphics and, apart from the graphs available in the statistical procedures, many users will never need to use anything else. For this reason it is well worth investing time in becoming familiar with its full range of capabilities. To illustrate the basics of proc sgplot we will use a small dataset giving some measurements of percentage body fat for 18 subjects together with their age and sex. 1. 1 xy Plots An xy plot is one in which the data are represented in two dimensions defined by the values of two variables.

Proc sgplot is used extensively throughout the book and many more options are illustrated in subsequent chapters. 2 Panel Plots A panel plot is a graph containing two or more plots within it. The reason for combining plots in a panel is either that they share a common purpose or to make comparisons between them. Proc sgpanel and proc sgscatter both produce multiple plots contained within a grid of panels. Within sgpanel the grid is defined by the values of one or more variables in the dataset with the result that each plot contains a subset of the data.

The default type for freqplot is barchart and the orientation can be controlled by using the orient= option with the values horizontal or vertical. 4. In this plot, the y-axis is centred on the estimated expected value under the null hypothesis and the bars show the ­relative deviation of each category’s frequencies from the expected value. 3 Dot plot of starting stall number of 144 winning horses. 4 Deviation plot of starting stall number of 144 winning horses. one with 29 winners is 61% above the expected value, whereas stall 6 with 10 ­winners is 44% below it.
