The HPSUMMARY Procedure

FREQ Statement


FREQ variable ;

The FREQ statement specifies a numeric variable that contains the frequency of each observation.

Required Argument


specifies a numeric variable whose value represents the frequency of the observation. If you use the FREQ statement, then the procedure assumes that each observation represents $n$ observations, where $n$ is the value of variable. If $n$ is not an integer, then SAS truncates it. If $n$ is less than 1 or is missing, then the procedure does not use that observation to calculate statistics.

The sum of the frequency variable represents the total number of observations.
