The REPORT Procedure |

WEIGHT variable; |
Required Arguments |
specifies a numeric variable whose values weight the values of the analysis variables. The value of the variable does not have to be an integer. If the value of variable is
To exclude observations that contain negative and zero weights from the analysis, use EXCLNPWGT. Note that most SAS/STAT procedures, such as PROC GLM, exclude negative and zero weights by default.
Restriction: | PROC REPORT will not compute MODE when a weight variable is active. Instead, try using PROC UNIVARIATE when MODE needs to be computed and a weight variable is active. |
Tip: | When you use the WEIGHT statement, consider which value of the VARDEF= option is appropriate. See VARDEF= and the calculation of weighted statistics in Keywords and Formulas for more information. |
Note: Before Version 7 of SAS, the procedure did not exclude the observations with missing weights from the count of observations.
Weight Information Is Not Saved |
When you store a report definition, PROC REPORT does not store the WEIGHT statement.
