The AUTOREG Procedure

CLASS Statement


CLASS variables ;

The CLASS statement names the classification variables to be used in the analysis. Classification variables can be either character or numeric.

In PROC AUTOREG, the CLASS statement enables you to output class variables to a data set that contains a copy of the original data.

Class levels are determined from the formatted values of the CLASS variables. Thus, you can use formats to group values into levels. See the discussion of the FORMAT procedure in SAS Language Reference: Dictionary for details.
