As the first step in the decommissioning of sasCommunity.org the site has been converted to read-only mode.


Here are some tips for How to share your SAS knowledge with your professional network.


Tips Talk:Weighting in PROC CORR

good tip - perhaps something about why WEIGHT might be used?--Art Carpenter 18:53, 8 July 2011 (UTC)


good tip - but I'd be explicit about which statistics it doesn't affect --Art T 19:00, 2 December 2011 (EST)


Murphy does it again! Keep up the good work. Tip was suggested last year and looks to me like two issues are now addressed:

  • (1) For Art Carpenter's suggestion, I have added a sentence on why WEIGHT is important. How does it look?
  • (2) the 'SAS Support' link tells what options are not valid: "The HOEFFDING, KENDALL, and SPEARMAN options are not valid with the WEIGHT statement", if that is of interest to readers. Should it be reformatted to 'See also' rather than 'SAS Support' ? You could consider it a 'tease' to look at the link, and serious readers always do.

FYI, I think I will weigh in more on 'reviewing', but leave 'promoting' to Sir Frank Fry and others. Charlie Shipp 22:20, 26 April 2012 (EDT)


This TIP is now in production!

Murphy; congratulations on a great TIP. You explanation to be aware of missing values shows depth. Charlie Shipp (talk) 11:03, 5 June 2014 (CDT)
