SAS Note: 001583 ***ALERT NOTE*** Product: BASE

Title:

Multiple statistics w/alias under analysis variable may be incorrect

Keywords:

MULTIPLE STATISTICS ALIAS PROC REPORT ANALYSIS ACROSS INCORRECT WRONG

COMPUTED RIGHT COLUMN STATEMENT

Text:

If more than one statistic with an alias is specified under an analysis

variable and there is a computed variable to the right on the column

statement, the reported statistics will be equal to the first stated

statistic value. For example:

COL analysis,(statistic1=alias1...statisticN=aliasN) computed

OR COL analysis,statistic1=alias1 analysisN,statisticN=aliasN computed

There are 2 possible workarounds.

1) state the analysis variable and the alias separately on the column

statement and then use the define statement to specify the statistic

For example: COL analysis1=a1 analysisN=aN computed;

Define a1 / statistic; Define aN / statistic;

2) use the NOALIAS option on the PROC REPORT statement. NOTE: if the

NOALIAS option is used then any reference to the alias in a compute

block will need to use analysis.statistic form (not the alias name)
