    SN-009806 ***Alert Note***

    Hougaard's measure of skewness and standard errors of parameters may be
    incorrect if BOUNDS are active

    Product: SAS/STAT
    Component: NLIN procedure
    Priority: ALERT

      If the HOUGAARD option is specified on the PROC NLIN statement and there
      is an active BOUND involving more than one parameter, both Hougaard's
      measure of skewness and the standard errors of the parameters will be
      incorrect.

      To circumvent the problem with the standard errors of the parameters,
      remove the HOUGAARD option from the PROC NLIN statement. There is no
      circumvention for the problem with Hougaard's measure of skewness.
