HBAR variable(s) </ option(s)>;

Required Argument


specifies the variables for which PROC CHART produces a horizontal bar chart, one chart for each variable.


The options available on the BLOCK, HBAR, PIE, STAR, and VBAR statements are documented in Customizing All Types of Charts.

Statement Results

Each chart occupies one or more output pages, depending on the number of bars; each bar occupies one line, by default.

By default, for horizontal bar charts of TYPE=FREQ, CFREQ, PCT, or CPCT, PROC CHART prints the following statistics: frequency, cumulative frequency, percentage, and cumulative percentage. If you use one or more of the statistics options, then PROC CHART prints only the statistics that you request, plus the frequency.
