Advanced ODS: Controlling precisely what output is displayed

PROC SGPLOT displays titles inside the graph. If you want to display a title inside the graph and a different title outside the graph, you can use the ODS LAYOUT or the GTL. The ODS LAYOUT gives you precise control over your output and enables you to display multiple graphs and tables in each page.

Basic ODS Graphics: Axis Options

In this blog, I will review some of graphs from previous blogs while concentrating on just the axes, grid lines, and reference lines. They might not be the most exciting parts of a graph, but there are multiple options that when properly used can turn a good graph into a great graph.

Advanced ODS Graphics: Equated Axes and the Aspect Ratio

When displaying maps, geometric shapes (such as circles), or results of certain analyses, it is important to equate axes. This blog illustrates options in PROC SGPLOT that enable you to equate axes.

Multipage Adverse Event Reports Using PROC SGPLOT

Did you know that you can make a graph extend across multiple pages? Making a multipage graph poses no problem for ODS Graphics---you simply use a BY variable to create page breaks. Most of the work involves deciding where to break pages and properly labeling continuations.

Should we move to Ireland?

Recently, while browsing health care data, I came across the graph shown below.  The graph includes the healthy life expectancy at birth by countries in the EU, along with the associated per capita expenditure.  The graph also shows estimate of potential gain in life expectancy by increasing expenditure efficiency. The [...]

Drawing paths on a map using SGplot

For those of you who don't have SAS/Graph's Proc GMap, I recently showed how to 'fake' a variety of maps using Proc SGplot polygons. So far I've written blogs on creating: pretty maps, gradient shaded choropleth maps, and maps with markers at zip codes. And now (by special request from [...]

Consistent Ordering of all Graph Components

This blog shows you how to make a bar chart and an X-axis table; ensure consistency in the order of the legend, bar subgroups, and axis table rows; coordinate the colors for each of those components; and drive all the color choices from an attribute map.

Plotting markers on a map at zip code locations, using GMap or SGplot

Users frequently ask how to plot their data as markers on a map. There are several ways to do this using SAS software. If you're a Visual Analytics user, you can do it using a point-and-click interface. But if you're a coder, you might need a little help... In this [...]
